Earth, United States
I’m Anthony DeVergillo and I am 19 years old and have been living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a muscle-deteriorating disease, for my entire life. I don’t consider his disability a bad thing at all and wouldn’t want to change anything for the world. And I will not, and have not, let my disability stop me!
I started a blog a little over one year ago called The Optimist’s Guide to Life at http://www.anthonysabilities.com/blog/. My mission was to show people that life is a beautiful thing and should not be wasted. As of now, I have a total of 17,000+ first time visitors, from all around the world, on my award-winning blog. I was even presented the Young Heroes Award and was featured as an Intelligent Optimist in Ode Magazine.
Despite my disability, my abilities have NO bounds! I believe that everyone has a disability, whether it be visible or not, and we must learn to overcome what holds us back! This is The Optimist’s Guide to Life…
