Day 26 of #dwarfismawarenessmonth

One of the biggest misconceptions of the 21st century must be that tallness = success and that people with Dwarfism cannot amount to anything of significance.

You don’t necessarily have to be tall to be successful.

We have so many examples from history of short people bringing their A game.πŸ’ͺ🏻

LPs have surely come a long way from being sidekicks in comedy strips and as part of the circus sideshow.

Please know that there is nothing wrong with pursuing a career in comedy but the issue is how society assumes that we are nothing more than that.

We have among the Ugandan LP community; parents, entrepreneurs, comedians,teachers, social workers, farmers, Data analysts, accountants, bankers, and a whole lot other professionals doing well in their careers and personal lives.πŸ™ŒπŸ»

We have LPs that are taking care of their families including financially supporting others within our communities.✌🏿

When I was born in the 80s there was no hope for someone like me , but now we have squashed the myths.β€πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ’ͺ🏻

I was judged based on the body I came in.😭

My first success as a child was being the most academically gifted child in the entire family.

(a record that remains undefeated)πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’ͺ🏻

I have continued to open eyes and minds within my family and beyond with various achievements that none of my average height family members have.πŸ’―

Alhamdulillah πŸ™

And we shall continue to break down the walls of biases and misconceptions through educating the masses that #naffeTusobola.πŸ’ͺ🏻✌🏿

Most of this progress has come with communities being more knowledgeable and informed about dwarfism.

This has opened up spaces for us in schools, training institutions and workplaces but also inspirations from LPs that have defied the odds and live lives of #noexcuses!!πŸ’―

As long as we continue raising awareness, we hope for a future of limitless possibilities for all LPs.

I am proof that height doesn’t really matter!!πŸ˜ŠπŸ™β€οΈπŸ’ƒ
