This is 20-year-old Qatari, Ghanim Al-Muftah. He starred alongside Morgan Freeman and recited the Quran in the QatarWorldCup2022 opening ceremony.
Ghanim was born with a rare condition known as Caudal Regression Syndrome, affecting the development of the lower half of the body.
Many suggested his mother abort Ghanim but she decided to have him: “I will be his left leg and you will be his right leg”.
Ghanim became Qatar’s youngest entrepreneur, having founded an ice-cream business. He plays multiple sports despite physical disabilities. At school, Ghanim used to play football wearing shoes on his hands and would chase after the ball with his “normal-sized” friends.
Rather than allowing the condition to stunt his life, Ghanim has learned to overcome obstacles with positivity. He is currently pursuing his university degree, majoring in political sciences with a goal of becoming a diplomat.
