The eldest child of a Serbian family,
Nick Vujicic was born in Brisbane, Australia. He was limbless, missing both
arms at shoulder level, as well as legless. His feet were toeless except
for two toes on one foot. Initially, his parents were devastated,
though Vujicic was otherwise healthy.
Originally prohibited by
Victoria state law from attending a mainstream school because of his
physical disability, even though he was not mentally impaired, Vujicic
became one of the first disabled students integrated into a mainstream
school, once the laws changed.
Being bullied at school, Vujicic grew
depressed and by the age of eight, contemplated suicide. At age ten he
tried to drown himself, but did not go through with it out of love for
his parents. After praying to grow arms and legs, Vujicic eventually

grateful for his life. A key turning point came when his mother showed

the "heel and toe" method. He learned to throw tennis balls, play drum
pedals, get himself a glass of water, comb his hair, brush his teeth,
answer the phone and shave.
In grade seven he was elected captain of
his school and worked with the student council on fund-raising events
for local charities and disability campaigns. When he was seventeen, he
started to give talks at his prayer group, and eventually started his
non-profit organization, Life Without Limbs.

nominated for the "Young Australian of the Year" Award. Many
organizations help him and his organization raise money for him or
support the organization achieve goals for disabled people. For example,
