“Desire for life is an inherent property of any living creature. It does not matter what restrictions one has to overcome – life will find a way.”

Imagine that every day is a challenge for you. Every day is a negotiation. Starting from a young age – a pursuit of life through the hardship. Conventional tablet computer is just too heavy. Time of getting up in the morning must be arranged in advance with those who help every day. Meet Valery Spiridonov. By the will of nature, this man is so physically weak that he cannot move independently and do simple things. According to doctors, the diagnosis “spinal muscular atrophy” is irreversible and there is no known cure for it. However, Valery’s family refused to submit to necessity, and enabled him to become a person unstayed by obstacles.

From an early age, Valery grew up in an environment of discipline, love for knowledge and full support of his interests by the family. Parents realized that the life would not be easy for Valery, if they did not nurture the desire for education, research and organization. After all, the time when he would be by himself, personally managing his life, would inevitably come.

Today, Valery is a successful engineer, who received a diploma and graduated from high school with honors. He is actively involved in social and political life. He is surrounded by people who support him and help him realize that all the difficulties he experienced were not in vain. Valery is confident in his own strength and the inevitable success of those who seek life, regardless of any obstacles.

Prospective projects aimed to extend and enhance the quality of life, the sphere of information technologies, the passion for science and technology, as well as meetings, communication and travel, turned the life of the man, who had seemingly limited possibilities, into the boundless motivation for many (including healthy) young people.

“Do a little more than you can every day, take risks sometimes – this is what will change life for the better. Any life. Do not be afraid to get out of your comfort zone. There is magic there.”
