Living life without limits | Felicia Shafiq | IIS 2016

Published on October 30, 2017 by Team India Inclusion Summit

Felicia Shafiq, a software support engineer and a member of National Women’s Sitting Volleyball team in Canada, says that amazing things can happen by being positive and opening yourself to new opportunities. The proud paralympian takes the audience through her life journey and talks about how she is living her dream. Felicia lost her legs in 2011 to acute illness. Since then, with the help of her family, and her team of doctors and physiotherapists, she is back to work, and back to playing the sport she loved. Acceptance, she says, is liberating. Felicia emphasises that there is strength in asking for and accepting help. With the help of a strong support network and positive attitude, Felicia is living her life without limits.
