American woman with no hands will take the exam for black belt in Tae Kwon Do

32-year-old Sheila Radzevich was born with the syndrome of thrombocytopenia, which is expressed in the absence of her hands and knee cups. In addition, as a child her legs were deployed to each other. The girl had to endure multiple operations and to wear metal braces on his legs, like the character Tom Hanks in the movie “Forrest Gump”.

In 19 years, Sheila began to live separately from their parents. In 1923 she received a driver’s license (car she drives down). Several years ago, the woman started to attend classes in tae kwan do and learn to work with the nunchaku, and a stick, writes The Salem News.

The following month, Sheila will take the exam for a black belt in taekwondo.
