Indeed, the human spirit is one of ability, perseverance and courage that no disability can steal away. Despite the curve balls life throw at some people, they only seem to become stronger and even more determined.
Determined and strong are no doubts the right words to describe Sinikiwe Kademung, a Zimbabwean lady who has got the internet buzzing in awe. Born with no arms and no knees, she can be described as one of the most vibrant persons you could ever meet.
The 24-year-old runs a blog called Life in the shoes of a short girl where she share her life experience with the aim of inspiring other physically challenged people. She considers herself a ‘rock star’ who believes nothing is impossible if you set your mind to it.
According to her, growing up presented a lot of social and cultural barriers, it however did not kill her determination. Sinikiwe is the winner of the 2016 Courage award for the Zimbabwe International Women’s Awards (ZIWA). She is currently completing her degree in Social Work at the University of Cape Town.
