Have you ever been surprised by something succeed when you had deemed it hopeless? Listen to what happened when Kirsti met a little girl, Naomi, the first time she travelled to China for People Like Us.
Putting limits on people is something we all do almost every single day. We do it without even realizing it most of the time. We underestimate people’s potential and what they are capable of.

Next time you think about judging a person based on the disabilities you place on them, think about the girls and boys like Naomi who are judged everyday based on what they look like, and how they are constantly breaking through the stereotypes.
