Richie Parker is the living proof that you can achieve and be anything you want to be despite unfortunate circumstances. He was born without arms, and had to adapt his mind and body to overcome this disability and be able to fulfill his dream to work for Hendrick Motorsports – the most winning NASCAR organization.
Parker was able to learn to operate the computer keyboard and mouse with his feet, and to apply his engineering skills to design top-notch chassis and other NASCAR automotive body components for Hendrick.
With amazing persistence, Parker was able to design a system which enables him to drive a car without arms and to actually use it. He also has acquired a remarkable set of skills allowing him to perform everyday simple actions, such as opening the fridge or any other thing we normally do with our hands and arms.
The story of this ambitious man is an inspiration to all who do not believe in themselves and who are afraid to pursue their dreams.
