A speech about people with disabilities

Not to long ago, May 31 if I remember correctly, I took part in a festival named Teen Fest that takes place each year in my region. This year theme was about Boosting, Inspiring and Giving courage to those that are incapacitated or socially disabled. I went on the stage, and had my little fun talking about this theme. Thing is, I won 1st place at the monologue contest and the festival award. The reasons I think I received this award are:

  • I did not talk about how hard it is for those who are actually incapacitated and instead I talked about how they could have fun, and feel special
  • I talked from all my heart because I knew how hard it is for someone to be incapacitated/miss a limb because of my father
  • Even though I kept on joking and saying silly stuff, at one point I went serious and said the following thing:
  • There are times in one’s life when he reaches a wall or a mountain he can’t pass he can eighter look back and live in the past, while feeling sorry for him/herself or one could move on, and try to jump over that wall and if he can’t do that, one could climb it, and even if that doesn’t work one could get a hammer or a cannon and blow that wall to smithereens.

    TweetMeet Buzau

    Last Saturday(5th of June) I had the pleasure to take part at the second edition of TweetMeet Buzau. If I where to describe the meeting in 1 word, then that word would be: “Awesome”. And I mean it. The people where awesome, the jokes they made where awesome, the cookies we ate where awesome, everything and everyone at that place and time can be described like that. I had a lot of fun watching the guys from #DreamTeamRo, listening to Alex and Roxana Farca, eating the cookies brought by Sabina and cooked by her uncle, discussing ’bout gadgets and laptops with Mihai Baboi, Chinezu and Marius [Make].

    Here’s some of the photos I took with my iPhone:
