Brimming with confidence, student with disability eyes brilliant future (Video)
KABUL (Pajhwok): Haseebullah Shahabi, a 25 years old man with disability who recently found his way to the Kabul University, says special people can excel at studies and have equal chances of success. A resident of Panjsher province, Shahabi is born with both of his legs disabled. He has been using his hands to move around throughout his life. However, he has nerves of steel, determined to rise in his life. Studying at the Agriculture Faculty of Kabul University for the past two years, he told Pajhwok Afghan News: “I found a wheelchair a few days ago and that has facilitated my movements. Previously, I relied on my hands to go from one place to another, “I would take several breaks during my movement from the hostel to the university. As a result, I felt exhausted,” he added. But the man is no longer suffering from that fatigue. About his future and education, Shahabi said: “I will continue my education and receive a degree. I am optimistic of finding a rewarding job and working to serve my homeland.”
