I don’t know why people teach kids about ‘pimples’ and ‘hormones’ and ‘armpit hair’, and refrain from telling them that if they don’t achieve their billion-dollar dreams at the age of twenty-one, there will still be much more to life. And that when you fail at your first job, it isn’t going to be the end of the world. And eventually you will realize that each person’s world is different and your only job is to figure out what your best world can be.

Qian Hongyan was just four when she lost both her legs. A speeding trucker left her for dead as she crossed the main road in her village of Zhuangshang in southern China. 

For nearly two years Qian was immobile as she didn’t even have enough of her body left to sit up in a wheelchair. Doctors said her only hope of being able to move by herself again would be extensive surgery to allow her to be fitted with prosthetic limbs.Her parents couldn’t afford this treatment. 

Qian’s granddad Yuan came up with a simple but effective treatment to get her moving again. He took a basketball the village boys had discarded and cut a hole just big enough for tiny Qian to fit into, padded the inside with stiff floor mats from his car, then propped her up inside. All of a sudden Qian was able to stabilize herself and was able to by move herself by rolling the ball in any direction she wanted. She supported herself using wooden handles. 

From that day on Qian would not be stopped by any obstacle. She went back to school, started to play with her friends again, and started to get back the life of any girl her age. She began professional swimming training in 2007 and defied the odds of her double amputation to become one of the first members of the Yunnan Youth Swimming Club.

She won three gold medals in last year’s Yunnan Para Games and took a gold and two silver medals at the National Swimming Championship for the Disabled (Under 18) in 2009 before continuing impressively at this year’s Para Games.

I should have added this in the original post but after attention in the Chinese press, Qian traveled to Beijing to receive free artificial limbs at the China Rehabilitation Research Center, a center that has been providing help to the disabled in China for over 20 years. At 18 years old she is ready for her full adult prosthetics. 

Inspirational Smart Girl!

When you’re growing you think everything is the same, when you’re old enough to look into your past you realize that it’s too late to change something and that joyful moments happenes too fast.

We need to talk about: Muriel Siebert.
The first woman to own a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, Muriel Siebert has rightly earned her title as The First Lady of Wall Street. A groundbreaking female figure in Finance, Siebert was a dedicated advocate for women and minorities in industry and worked tirelessly to promote financial literacy for all. Despite never graduating from university, Siebert worked her way up the ranks not only to break into what was a spectacularly male dominated workplace, but to eventually become Superintendent of Banks for the State of New York, during which time not a single bank failed under her. Definitely recommend watching this quick interview on MAKERS.
Muriel Faye “Mickie" Siebert, an inspiring woman who firmly believed in the truth that companies can never reach their full potential if they "limit their talent pool to the male 50 percent of the population”.
