Girl Draws With Mouth – level 3

13-04-2021 15:00

Sixteen-year-old Robaba Mohammadi from Afghanistan was born with partial paralysis of her limbs.

In her country, people often perceive disability as a weakness, and she said that she used to be depressed and cried at least two or three times a day. However, she discovered a passion for drawing which gives her a great deal of strength.

Instead of drawing with her fingers, she uses her mouth. She started drawing two years ago and now has lofty goals – her dream is to hold an art exhibition in the Aga Khan Museum, one of Canada’s biggest museums.

Difficult words: paralysis (when you cannot move a part of your body), perceive (see something in a certain way), lofty (big).
