|MARIE BOCHET, |
Champion for Peace and Paralympic and World Champion – Alpine skiSport has allowed me to learn about myself, to push my limits and to adapt. Through my journey, I would like to inspire other people with disabilities to surpass themselves and do everything to achieve their goals. By showing another face of disability, I would also like my story to help change mentalities. When you believe in it, anything is possible.
|JULIUS ACHON OLY,|
Athletics World Champion and Member of the Ugandan Parliament As an inspiration to the younger generation, I would like to tell the youth never to give up and always strive to do better. Sport can be a way out of poverty, and it can forge lasting friendships. I would also like to persuade young people to give back to their community and care for others once they have achieved their goals.
