Wang Fang of Chongqing, China — now in her 30s — was born with her feet facing backwards. She is also the beholder of abnormal hands.
Rather than living a stagnant “poor me” existence, the energetic woman lives a purpose filled life. “I can run faster than most of my friends and have a regular job as a waitress,” Fang recently told a Chinese reporter.
“I can walk as well as anyone else and even run faster than them. I’m like everyone else – except of course that I put my shoes on backwards.”
Fang’s hope is to inspire others to look beyond their disabilities and live a full life. For those seeking a successful career path, her story has the power to help fuel the passion and enthusiasm needed to excel. It’s about time we human beings stop looking at our limitations and begin focusing on endless possibility.
She reminds us of this Brazilian man born with his head upside down. Both amazing human beings are an inspiration to us all.
