When Emmanuel was born, his dad left him since he only had one leg but his mother didn't.
Emmanuel's mom carried him to school untill one day he was too heavy so he hopped 2 miles to and back from school.
Emmanuel got a bike, a helmet, shorts, socks, and gloves from the Challenged Athletes Foundation. He got the blessing of the king in his region. He went door-to-door asking for support. Finally he got enough money for a taxi that carried water, a camera, and his friends. Then he tied his right foot to bike, put his left foot into a flip-flop that is attached to the pedaled and rode all around his country to prove "that one leg is enough to do great things and one person is enough to change the world.
One day Emmanuel's mom got really sick so she could not make money to feed the kids so Emmanuel secretly went to Accra to get money for his family.
Emmanuel tried to find a job but no one would hire him untill a food stand owner gave him a job and even a place to stay.
Emmanuel's mom was getting even more sick so Emmanuel went back and Emmanuel's mom said on Christmas Eve , "Be respectful, take care of your family, don ever beg, and don't give up." The next day she was dead so to honor her last words, Emmanuel had a plan.
