Nick Vujicic

Do you have someone in your family or heard of someone that lost their leg or arm?

Well Nick Vujicic had lost both legs and arms at birth. He himself is very determined to succeed in life by trying to find a way to do things on his own. For instance, when Nick swims he breathes in to go up and exhales to go down. Nick can also hold his breath longer than an average person because he doesn’t need to give oxygen to legs and arms. Compared to a an average person that swims with their arms and legs, Nick swims very differently. Also Nick walks differently than other people. He has to use his “drum stick” and his momentum from his chest to move.This is also something that he does very different than others. Overall, Nick is really determined to accomplish many other things.

Albert Einstein

The reason why everyone thought that Albert Einstein wasn’t that intelligent when he was little because he couldn’t speak till he was four and did not read until he was seven. This caused his teachers and parents to think he was mentally handicapped. Others thought he might be slow or anti-social. Eventually,Albert got kicked out of school. He had then moved on in life and changed the world making modern physics. Lastly, Albert was determined to be successful in life.
