Who says disorders and disabilities will stop you from inspiring and cheering other people up? This guy without limbs spreading good vibes on Tiktok will prove you wrong.
Diego Garcia, an office clerk in Davao de Oro was born without his lower limbs due to a rare congenital disease called Tetra-Amelia Syndrome. The disease can also cause severe malformations in other parts of the body. Despite that, Diego is living a normal life with his mother.
As a kid, Diego has dreamt of becoming an actor. He also liked watching television shows like singing and dancing competitions that inspired him to try his ability to do what other people do. So he downloaded Tiktok to showcase his talent while inspiring other people to follow their dreams whatever it takes.
People who pushed him to fight despite his disability are the ones who motivated him to download the app and use it as a platform to inspire.
“Naging inspirasyon ko sa pag Tiktok ‘yung mga taong pilit akong pinu-push na lumaban, pinu-push ako na ‘wag mahiya kung ano ‘yung dapat ipakita.”
