My name is Nicolò,
I am a 24-year-old guy from Rome and shortly after my birth I was diagnosed with a rare disease, Poland Syndrome: absence of the right pectoral muscle and right hand malformation.
After my life experiences I can now say that I live my diversity confident and aware that if we are judged it has nothing to do with us, but with those judging us.
This was made possible thanks to all the people who have been standing by me: my family, my friends and the Italian Association of Poland Syndrome, a point of reference especially during the most challenging age, adolescence.
Anyway, only those who face the same daily issues as you can understand you in the best way.
