Tell us how your life changed in a day
Before I turned 21, I was a totally different person. I was living my life passively, I was without motivation, courage, and the desire to live. Then on November 14, 2012, my life was turned upside down due to an accident at work that led to the amputation of my right leg. I had to fight with the worst part of me, my demons, I had to redefine my priorities and start all over again. Like a child, I had to learn how to walk.
How did you change your mentality?
Later, after numerous mistakes, painful experiences, and difficulties, I chose to find the positive from this accident. The sport was fundamental in this transformation. First I started with running, and then I moved on to trekking. Just then I began to appreciate even the most obvious things like walking.
I put my only foot in the box for the first time in August 2018, and since that day, I have never been out of it. I love to challenge myself, overcome my limits, and strive to be the best version of myself. I love to train and publish the videos of my workouts, to show that the limits are only mental and to encourage those, who find themselves in a difficult situation, simply to tell them that we all go through the pain. But the important thing is how we deal with everything because these difficult moments make us stronger and more resilient.
I have chosen to live this life, and I will continue to appreciate every single moment.
