This was exactly her words in the social Media as she was being celebrated for passing the "Introduction to International Arbitration" in the Chartered Institute of Arbitration.

Her full name is Jennifer Nikoro Oghenewaire but professionally, She is been addressed as NIKORO J.O. (ESQ.).

Jennifer was born without a "right Forelimbs" and has lived all her life maimed.

She is an Urhobo born Lawyer who made headlines recently on the social media for completing a new course (Introduction to International Arbitration). She is a physically challenged legal practitioner with various awards and qualifications to her credit.

She defied the odds of criticism and mockery in society and has become one of the most successful and respected lawyers in society.

Jennifer is a graduate of law with an LLB from the Ambrose Ali University and a Bachelor of Law from the Nigeria Law School.

There is indeed ability in every disability. Jennifer has shown to be an exemplary figure. Not minding the disability, she has striven to become a legal practitioner, an Arbitrator, a Mediator, Public Speaker, and a Disability coach who uses her influence to inspire persons with disabilities.

Not only being a role model to the physically challenged, she is also a mentor and role model to many others who are not even physically challenged.

I was challenged and motivated to press harder in my dream when I learned that Jennifer founded an Organization named "Life Beyond Disability". The foundation is aimed at motivating everyone who is physically challenged to be creative.

Indeed, Jennifer's life is Beyond Disability.
