Physical Disability no obstacle for this journalist

"I always end the show with an inspiring phrase. It says, 'What's important is to live life, everything else will pass.'”

Up until recently, he played hockey. During a European Championship, his team gave Benedict XVI a team jersey. His passion for sports led him to a team made up of disabled players. Once he stopped playing, he decided to become a coach.

"Typically the teams are coached by people who don't have a disability, so there's always a notion out there, of 'sure, but you don't know how it really is for us out there.' But they couldn't say that to me.”

Last year he went to the Paralympics Games in London, not as an athlete though, but as a journalist. He says it was an experience that reinforced his mission even more.

"I saw an athlete who would throw an arrow and he didn't have an arm. I saw a blind swimmer. I interviewed him and asked him, 'how can you swim without seeing?' He responded by asking me: 'How can you swim and see?' He has won four gold medals.”

It's through his job as a journalist at the Superabile-INAIL communication department, that he fulfills his dreams while inspiring others to do the same.
