    A life like no other

    He is Wilfredo Dichoso a 47 years old man who keeps on looking at life in a positive way despite of all that happened to him.

    It was March 18, 1988; he was 24 years old when an accident happened while he was working on a carving machine. His hands got attached to the magnet because of his watch that led with the cutting of his left arm.

    At first he didn’t accept what happened because no people with normal capabilities before can accept it easily. He was one year in despair. He hated the world but a lot of people talked to him and told him to move on and proceed with life.

    After a year he thought of going back to school and to proceed with his life he focused in studying and returned to University of Perpetual Help System Laguna. He graduated BS Industrial Engineering on 1993. A year after he got married.

    He believes that trials may come but we must learn to surpass it. He is now a part of an organization that helps Peoples with Disabilities. He wants to let them know that one must learn to stand and move on with the negative things that might happen in life.
