  • Hi Bliss, I am really glad to read article about you. It is hard to predict what you will be or what will happen to you. There are a lot of unpredictable happening to you even health condition. I am proud to see, greet and meet people like you. Physical handicap is only a part of physical disability but this barrier can break through if you believe and trust in yourself. To educate and practice any skill or knowledge regularly to be specialist, this will help everyone to skip from this barrier. Furthermore, you also spare your time to help other people. You are so gorgeous.
