Over 16 years ago, Manami Ito was involved in a terrible car crash, which ended up in her losing her right arm. Being partially handicapped didn’t stop her from becoming a nurse at the local hospital.
Even so, she didn’t want to stop here. When she saw some of the other amputees playing various sports, Manami became even more determined to do something amazing with her life.
Thus, she started swimming, eventually getting medals and reaching 4th place at the 2008 Paralympics in Beijing, China. Most recently, she expressed a desire to learn to play the violin. For years she practiced, which resulted in concerts and tours across the country. Have a look at this shining example of how to never give up below.
