Meet Nick Vujicic

NYT Best Selling Author, International Speaker, Entrepreneur

Born without limbs for no medical reason, Nick Vujicic knew from an early age that he was different. As a child, Nick was faced with bullying and would go home feeling that he was a failure. At age 10, his depression led him to try drowning himself. He came to understand, though, that he was his greatest discourager, he was loved, and he did have hope for a meaningful, beautiful life. 

After overcoming ignorance and discrimination to build what he calls a “ridiculously good” life, he realized his mission: to use his“disability” to start conversations that change lives. Through his public speaking and initiating AIA, Nick wishes to inspire students to be their own greatest encourager and friend and to show kindness towards one another. He desires them to have hope, to feel loved, and to show gratitude.

Nick has spoken over 3,000 times in more than 57 countries on topics as varied as bullying, inspiring positive change, persistence and determinations, and his own life story. No matter where he goes, he communicates one core message—that no matter your circumstance, you can overcome!

Nick is the author of several books including:
