In this life, you need to ask yourself how important and useful you are in society. A very resourceful Claudio Vieira de Oliveira was born with his upside down.
The 37-year-old’s mother was medically advised to let him starve to death due to a rare condition of the joints that left him with severely deformed limbs … and an upside-down head.
Claudio Vieira de Oliveira despite his physical limitations, has defied doctors’ doubts to become an inspirational public speaker and an accountant.
According to Claudio, ‘ he said, Since I was a child I’ve always liked to keep myself busy and work – I don’t like to depend totally on other people. ‘I do a bit of accounting, research for clients, and consulting.
‘I have learned to turn on the TV, pick up my cell phone, turn on the radio, use the internet, my computer – I do it all by myself.’
It will surprise you to know that Claudio types with a pen held in his mouth operate phones and a computer mouse with his lips and have specially made shoes that allow him to shuffle around town.
His independence helped and saw him succeed at school and qualify him as an accountant from the State University of Feira de Santana.
When Claudio was born, doctors told his mother, Maria Jose, he would not be able to survive.
Maria Jose said: ‘People started saying ‘the baby is going to die’ because he could barely breathe when he was born.
‘Some people would say: ‘Don’t feed him, he is already dying’.
