Nick Vujicic, motivational speaker born without limbs, enjoys beach getaway with wife and son

Vujicic was born with tetra-amelia syndrome, a rare disorder that is
characterised by the absence of all four limbs.
His worldwide motivational speeches tell of courage overcoming
disability, and the bullying he suffered as a child. His life and his
determination serve as an inspiration to countless thousands worldwide.
Nick struggled with his disability as a child, both physically and
emotionally. At the age of ten, after a failed suicide attempt where he tried
to drown himself in a bath, he vowed never to give up again.
By the age of 17 he had started his own non-profit charity - Life Without
Limbs.
After university, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce,
Vujicic embarked on a motivational speaking tour, concentrating on
teenage issues, disability, and his faith in God and how it helps his life.
To date, he has visited more than 40 countries on five continents.
