They said I’d never be great because of my condition, now look at me – People cries after watching his story

An 18-year-old boy, Ahmed Salami, says he was born with autism, cerebral palsy and Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

ADHD is a condition that affects people’s behaviour. People with ADHD can seem restless, may have trouble concentrating and may act on impulse.

Ahmed was unable to talk until he got to six years old. Due to his condition, he was ridiculed by people who told him he would never be great.

Ahmed said his mother was also advised to take him away because they thought he didn’t have any talents, but his mother refused.

At the age of six, he began to talk, although he started as a stammerer.

Ahmed becomes a YouTuber

Shortly after he started speaking, Ahmed began creating videos weekly which he posted on YouTube.

In the videos, Ahmed speaks on his personal journey and tries to inspire people like him who are battling with disabilities.

“I see myself on a big stage and many people screaming my name Ahmed Salami. I’m living with autism, cerebral palsy and ADHD. When I was little, I was literally written off. They wanted to take me away. They said I didn’t have any talents. But look at them now”, Ahmed told BBC Africa.

Emotional reactions trail Ahmed’s video

Amazing! Mothers! I have no idea what level of patience and love God added to them when he took that rib! Shine on Ahmed.”

“Where is his YouTube channel?”

Olawalix said:

“Wow, the mother is just his biggest motivator. Yes he speaks fluently and is highly intelligent than most people who seem normal, he has a plan and I believe he can achieve that.”
