Woman in wheelchair expresses herself through dance

“When I dance, it’s a way of saying things that words can’t express."

It is said that when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. 

No excuse should keep you from fulfilling your purpose or dream in life. 

One lady who understands this very well is Christelle Dreyer, a woman who refused to let her medical condition keep her from following her passion for dancing. 

Dreyer suffers from osteogenesis imperfecta, or brittle bones. In fact, she told Beautiful News that she has fractured so many bones she’s lost count.

However, even with the broken bones, Dreyer continues to dance despite any risk it might pose. 

“I was born to dance,” she told the publication. 

The young lady says she enjoys dancing both on stage and in the studio.

“No challenge could ever keep me from moving forward,” she says. 

The dancer and graphic designer says dancing allows her to communicate in ways that are unexplainable.

“When I dance, it’s a way of saying things that words can’t express,” she told the publication. 

Dreyer also emphasised the fact that when it comes to her gift, she never competes with anyone. 

“I strive not to be better than someone else, but to better myself,” she said. 

“We all have different strengths and capabilities. It’s up to us as to how we tap into them," she told the publication. 

Below is the video of Dreyer doing what she does best!
