Narrator Adjoa Andoh's rich, clear voice resonates with emotion in this inspirational audio biography for young listeners. Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah is a world-renowned advocate for disability rights and a national hero in Ghana. Born without a right tibia (shin bone), Emmanuel grew up with physical limitations, superstitious fears, and societal injustices that severely restricted his opportunities.Yet, against the odds, encouraged by his mother and emboldened by his dreams, Emmanuel chose to make a difference. He pedaled a bicycle nearly 400 miles around Ghana in just 10 days to raise awareness of the physically challenged and share his message that "being disabled does not mean being unable." A gentle musical score and environmental sound effects complement Andoh's engaging narration. The author's note provides details of this extraordinary man's ongoing contributions.
