A Dream to Inspire
Sri Lestari has paraplegia and lives in Jakarta, Indonesia. She lost the use of her legs in a motorcycle accident, and didn't leave her home for ten years. Indonesia, like many places in the developing world, is a hostile environment for people with disabilities--much ado to the negative perception of disability and the lack of accessible resources. Sri became restless from being isolated in her community. She decided to raise the funds to buy a modified motorcycle that she could ride from her wheelchair, and began her journey to inspire. Now, she celebrates her own freedom and encourages others with disabilities to find theirs.
