Meet Alem Mumini
At the age of 2, I contracted polio. At this time, outbreaks were common with approximately 350,000-400,000 cases being reported yearly. From being a young boy I felt I had to prove myself and use fame as an opportunity to raise awareness for people with disabilities and change engrained perceptions that disabled people are ‘social parasites’, ‘beggars’ and ‘cursed’. This is my story.
