Nick Vujicic was born to Dushka and Boris Vujicic in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia. Although he was an otherwise healthy baby, Nick was born without arms and legs; he had no legs, but two small feet, one of which had two toes. Nick has two siblings, Michelle and Aaron. Initially, a Victoria state law prevented Nick from attending a mainstream school due to his physical disability in spite of a lack of mental impairment.
But it wasn’t until much later, after overcoming ignorance and discrimination to build what he calls a “ridiculously good” life, that he realized his mission: to use his “disability” to start conversations that change lives.
He has since spoken over 3,000 times in a total of more than 57 countries on topics as varied as bullying, inspiring positive change, persistence and determination, and his own life story.
No matter where he goes he communicates one core message— that no matter your circumstance, you can overcome!
Nick is the author of several books, including Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life, Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action, Love Without Limits: A Remarkable Story of True Love Conquering All and Stand Strong: You Can Overcome Bullying (and Other Stuff That Keeps You Down).
How did Nick Vujicic Meet His Wife?
God blesses the people who are willing to follow Him. Surprisingly, Nick met his own princess Kanae Miyahara. They fell in love at the first sight.
“I fell in love with him the way he is now,” Kanae said. Before she met Nick, she had dated with other guy for a physical goal, but she became tired of that. “The moment I met Nick, I was looking for other thing, and all the things I found in him,” Kanae said. “He is not only a boyfriend material, but he could be my husband.”
When Kanae met Nick in 2008, she was impressed by his signature generosity in spirit and good humor. For her, Nick is so handsome, and “the perfect match.” For Nick, “it was electric, when she stood by me, I just felt right.”
