Some people may think that the world can be a limiting and intimidating place when you’re in a wheelchair. What may seem like effortless tasks for those who can walk can become challenges for the wheelchair-bound: buildings without elevators, public transportation, and leading an active lifestyle. If you think travel can be cumbersome for them (and their company), think again. This guy proves that you can dare to dream and see the world.
Naprey Almario acquired polio when he was 8 years old. He became paralyzed from the waist down and he lost the ability to use his legs. Instead of letting it affect his life, he was inspired to become a spokesperson for people with disabilities, including leading a talk during the International Day for Disaster Reduction to advocate for PWD accessibility in institutional risk planning. He even joined Pinoy Big Brother in 2011!
He was also able to travel and see some of the world’s best sights, not letting his wheelchair status get in the way. He has been to Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, and many more. He has even gone diving!
Watch his adventures below:
