My first passion was capoeira (Brazilian material art). I met Meia Lua who got around by using his arms as legs and hands and feet, as his legs were paralyzed. I chose him as my capoeira master. Many had prejudgment about my choice since Meia Lua could not do the basic steps due to his disability.
What kind of mindset must you develop to become a master of a sport where the basic steps are based on your legs – when you can’t use yours?
I learned with him to be the owner of my thoughts despite any circumstances.
I followed my passion and made my first documentary about Meia Lua’s mindset.
When the audience watched Resilience they recognize their power to construct their life. The feedback from the audience made me discover that my life purpose was related to giving others the courage to embrace their uniqueness.
