Jeanesse Abela, a Maltese known for her empowering Facebook posts, continues to touch the hearts of many and defy misconceptions on cerebral palsy.
Even though many people who suffer from cerebral palsy are confined to a wheelchair, Jeanesse posted a video of herself walking around the office on a Monday morning, calling it “a bit of warm-up”. Donning her signature smile, she makes a full lap around the office, sitting back on her chair and giving her viewers a thumbs up.
Jeanesse regularly posts inspirational photos and videos of herself conquering her condition, and she’s on a mission to create more awareness on the true nature of cerebral palsy.
“It is my duty to be there for others,” she said. “It has to be someone like me, who faces challenges everyday.”
She later also posted of her posing standing up at her workplace, beaming. The caption that accompanied the photo perfectly describes her attitude towards life and what she’d like to do for other people in her position, “Look; I can do it, and you can do it too!”
