Paralyzed Student Walks On Graduation Day To Collect College Diploma

Graduation day is one of the most important days in the life of a young person, and Aldo Amenta too was excited about it, only thing was that he was completely paralyzed.

He had suffered a terrible diving accident which left him paralyzed and in a wheelchair. But he never gave up on his dreams and with the help of a physical therapy team and an exoskeleton, he was able to stand up and walk.

And walk he did when he got up and walked with the help of his therapist across the stage to receive his degree in electrical engineering from Florida International University.

We salute Aldo that he never gave up on his dreams and continued striving towards excellence, life can throw shade at you, but its up to you how you want to react to challenges.

Verse of the Day

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever. — Psalm 136:1,26 (NIV)
