A Brazilian man named Claudio Vieira de Oliveira was born with physical disabilities and has his neck folded back, but he has defied the odds to become an inspirational public speaker.


The 37-year-old was born with his neck upside-down, as well as badly deformed legs and almost no use of his arms and hands, the Mirror reported.

Doctors told Oliveira's mother to stop feeding him as a newborn as they believed he had no chance of survival but he overcame his extreme disadvantages and graduated as an accountant and became a public speaker.

Oliveira said that he doesn't like to depend totally on other people, so he have learned to turn on the TV, pick up his cell phone, turn on the radio, use the internet and computer.

Doctors have recently diagnosed him with a rare condition called congenital arthrogryposis.
