Nick Vujicic was born 4 December 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, to a devout Serbian Orthodox family. He lacks both arms and legs, and has two small feet, one of which has two toes. Victoria state law forbade him from attending a mainstream school because of his physical disability. But he overcame this and then was bullied. He grew extremely depressed, and by the age of 8, started contemplating suicide. After begging God to grow arms and legs, Nick eventually began to realize that his accomplishments were inspirational to many, and began to thank God for being alive.

Now Nick is a preacher, a motivational speaker and the director of Life Without Limbs, an organization for the physically disabled. He regularly gives speeches on disability and hope. He holds a degree with a double major in Accounting and Financial Planning. He has spoken to over two million people so far, in twelve countries on four continents.
