‘Learn from other people’s differences’


Matt Glowacki, who was born without legs, brought his inspirational message to the WEAC Summer Leadership Academy this week in Whitewater.

Among his messages:

“My disability exists in your mind more than it does in mine, most of the time.” …

“Learn from other people’s differences.” …

Rather than focusing on someone’s disability, “Give him a chance to surprise you.” …

“Once you become an angry person, it’s a way bigger disability than not having any legs.” …

“I like to say everybody has disabilities. … I kind of like disabilities because I think they reveal the content of your character because you are the person that overcame all those challenges today to accomplish what you need to accomplish.”
