Hindi naging hadlang sa isang 15-anyos na babae sa Perugia, Italy ang kaniyang kapansanan para hindi niya gawin ang mga bagay na magpapasaya sa kaniya.
Sa video ng Reuters, makikita si Francesca Cesarini, habang nagpapamalas ng kaniyang talento ng acrobatic pole dance kahit pa wala siyang mga kamay at putol ang isang binti.
"One day I woke up and I went to my mom and said that I want to do pole dance. I don't know if maybe I saw it on social media first, or I dreamt it, I don't know. I just know that I went to her and I said that I wanted to do pole dance," Francesca.
Fifteen-year-old Francesca Cesarini, who was born with no hands and with only one leg, competed in 2021 International Pole Sports Federation’s virtual championship. She won a gold medal as the only athlete to compete in the disability category https://t.co/sRIichzWoH pic.twitter.com/a51Yr8CTgA— Reuters (@Reuters) December 2, 2021
Taglay na ni Francesca ang kaniyang kapansanan mula nang siya ay isilang.
'Francesca is a girl who knows what she wants. She wants to achieve certain goals. But she is also a girl of her age, who wants to live in her moment," sabi ni Marco, ama ni Francesca.
"Francesca is not differently-abled, Francesca is like this, this is it. She has never had that limb, or hands, and so she does everything with what she has," patuloy niya.
Tatlong taon matapos magsimula sa pole dancing, lumahok si Francesca sa International Pole Sports Federation’s virtual championship. Nakamit niya ang gintong medalya bilang tanging atleta sa disability category.
''One thing I really like is that it makes me feel free, because I know that on the pole I can do what I want, so it's a very nice thing,” ayon kay Francesca.
