Ten-year-oldboyborn without arms is determined to conquer the world with his “magical feet” and has refused to give in to his physical disabilities.
Ha Van Tai, who lives in the small village of Kim Dau in Cam Lo District, Quang Tri Province, Vietnam, was born with neither of his arms, forcing him to rely on his flexible feet in order to perform daily tasks such as brushing teeth, writing, or turning pages in a book.
Nguyen Thi Thuy, Tai’s homeroom teacher at Le Van Tam Grade School, said Tai is one of her most impressive students and has inspired his classmates with his perseverance and resilience.
“Despite having no arm and a fragile physique, Tai has a great passion for learning and hasn’t skipped a single class. Tai’s example is not only a motivation for his fellow students but also an inspiration to teachers.” Nguyen said.
Using a chair as his table during a class at school, Tai hunched close to his feet and scribbled down lesson notes as gracefully and fast as any other student, stopping once in a while to listen attentively to the teacher’s words.
