Success Stories of One Legged Nigerians Who Gained Recognition and Became Wealthy (PHOTOS)

Disability isn't a death sentence. To some it is their greatest weakness, while to others it is to show how strong they have survived a certain situation and of course their testimony.

There are been some stories over the years regarding amputees gaining recognition by Nigerians for their bravery, strive to survive or for not letting that be a blockage to their dreams. On this article I'll share several amputees who didn't give up their goal despite losing a leg and gained recognition among Nigerians.

(1) Doris Samuel Akonanya:

Doris story should motivate others not to give up. She was involved in an accident with a motorcyclist at age 13 which resulted in an immediately operation on her leg due to the fact that her life was at stake. So many people would have given up at that stage but not Doris.

She had a dream of becoming an actress which she pursued with passion and studied theatre arts in Nnamdi Azikiwe University in Akwa, Anambra State. She didn't let peers discourage her and now, she has gained fame in acting. Checkout pics with her and other famous actors below

(2) Mary Daniels:

Her story is a grass to grace story. Mary lost her family in an accident which resulted her leg to be amputated for her life to be saved. Recently Mary was spotted hawking water by a man identified as Ibitoye who was touched of how she hustled, ibitoye was forced to give her money to start a business and quit Hawking pure water.

Not only that, after Mary gained recognition among Nigerians, a donation was made to her name by Nigerians which amounted to N14.3 million naira and she has finally quited hawking of water. Checkout how much she has changed below

(3) Jane Obiene:

Jane received a welcome support from Nigerians after she joined the #EndSars protest last year Oct. Despite her condition she marched along with fellow Nigerians in her crushes to protest against bad governance, this caught the eye of one Aproko Doctor who raised a funding goal for her after she described her condition.

Since 2013 after losing her leg, Jane found it hard to get a job and so a funding goal of N500,000 was raised for her to get a prosthetic leg so she can get a job. Miraculously, a total of N4.1 million was raised instead for her.

These are brave people who didn't let their poor condition hinder their success. They deserve a medal for it indeed. What can you say about this? Tell me in the comment box and also share this article so others can be updated as well.
