Description

Meet Sherena Loh. Sherena has Muscular Dystrophy, a debilitating disease in which the muscles progressively weaken. Doctors told her that she would only live until 25 years old. But many years later, Sherena is still alive—and living a full life. She rose above her circumstances and did all the things she never imagined she would be able to do—she graduated with a degree and various diplomas, found fulfilling jobs and even got married. She also helped set up the Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore) (MDAS) and currently serves as its Executive Director, dedicating her life to helping other persons with Muscular Dystrophy find purpose beyond their limits.

How did she do it? This book is not meant for people with disabilities and their caregivers alone, but for every one of us who has experienced adversity. Read about how Sherena developed a positive mindset that helped her conquer her physical, social and psychological struggles—and be inspired to conquer your own mountains.
