Many things can change your life. My life has changed by 11,000 high-volts. It is the real reason I am here now.
When I was 13 years old, I had an electric shock by touching the high voltage current in Nepal. The doctor game me 24 hours to die. The doctor amputated my both arms. That changed my life completely. I thought there was no way for me. Everything closed.
When people say, "Impossible," I automatically here it, "Possible." I'll find out another way. That's my talent. Instead of the hands, I started using my feet. When I go to the mountain, I never see the down. I always see the top of the mountain, and then I just start climbing. When I tell the people that I can climb the Mount Everest, most of people say, "No, no, no. It's impossible." I never wanted to give up, and to prove that "possible" is the highest dream is awesome.
My main reason is to climb the mountain is to spread the message that disability is not an inability.
