Celebrating Unique Talent: Ability Trumps ‘Disability’

Celebrating Unique Talent: Ability Trumps ‘Disability’

All of us have remarkable talents that are unique, and there needs to be a day to celebrate such talent – not just for the world, but for ourselves. Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day is a day to embrace your special talent and flaunt it in front of your friends and family. It could involve writing, painting, dancing, singing and playing sports, to name a few.

Children have a lot to offer to the world. On a day like this, all children, especially the differently abled, should embrace their quirky abilities and show them off to everyone else.

Differently abled children are not just sources of inspiration for us at MBCN. They are also a highly motivating force for thousands of people in our country. They have the grit and will power to rise against all odds and achieve the unthinkable. Such children motivate us beyond what words can ever express.

Today, we would like to share success stories of some of our special students, which make us realise that disability after all is just a word; it can”t stop anyone from achieving their goals.

The journey of life is not an easy one. At certain times during this journey, you might be brutally bombarded with challenges that leave you thoroughly discouraged. This shouldn”t stop you from dreaming big.

The symptoms include poor coordination, stiff muscles, weak muscles and tremors, depending on the severity of the case. Albeit a deadly disorder, CP can be overcome with a little support and a lot of courage.
