Girl Draws With Mouth – level 2

13-04-2021 15:00

In Afghanistan, disability is often seen as a weakness. One Afghan girl, however, does not see disability like that.

She was born with partial paralysis of her limbs, but that did not stop her from drawing. Instead of drawing with her fingers, she uses her mouth. She said that before she started to draw, she was very depressed. She cried two or three times a day. She feels better now and would like to hold an art exhibition in Canada.

Difficult words: partial (not full, existing only in part), paralysis (when you cannot move), limb (an arm or leg).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
