Stephen Hawkins said it best

An incredible human indeed. Stephen Hawking was someone who ignored his limitations and went on to be one of the greatest thinkers of our time. Diagnosed with a terminal illness at the age of 21, he was given two to three years to live. Hawkings beat the odds and lived up to the age of 76.

Hawkings life is proof that people with disabilities can and are capable of becoming succesful. He challenged the stigma that made people with dissbilities seem like less in the workplace.

Unfortunately, not enough people share the same sentiment as Hawkings. People in South Africa with disabilities only make up 1 percent. This statistic is shocking, especially in a country that has know discrimination and fought against it.

If people with disabilities try and find work, they are met with negative attitudes.
