Ce vei face

My whole life I had people tell my story on my behalf. They told me who I am, what I should pursue, where my limits are, and that I should adjust my expectations for the future based on their perception of me. Today, I stand proudly as proof that we all have the power to create ourselves in the image we want. As both a Paralympic swimmer and a refugee, I’ve endured my fair share of painful moments in life. But every time I’d come close to losing hope, my own inner strength would rise up to guide me towards a brighter tomorrow.

I’ve learned so much on this journey, and I want to share those lessons with as many people as possible, to give them hope and show them they have what it takes to achieve anything they put their mind to. Join me on this Online Experience where I will tell you my life story, starting from how I learned to embrace my body and unlock its full potential, to how swimming saved my life and ending with my Tokyo 2020 Paralympic dreams. And how, through it all, I tackled life’s toughest challenges. I want to inspire—and also be inspired—by you! Bring your questions and stories, and discover each others’ different experiences, our shared humanity, and the beauty of sports as a space for building solidarity that embraces difference.

My name is Abbas, and I'm a refugee athlete from Afghanistan. I currently live in the USA, where I’m training for the Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 to compete as a swimmer.

I’ve loved water since I was a child. I remember being around 14 when I started swimming in the community pool my brother managed near our home in Kabul. Being in the water I felt invincible and I’ve been swimming ever since.

In 2017 I won a silver medal in the S5 50m butterfly competition at the Mexico World Para Swimming Championships, and I’m now eager to achieve even more success in my sport.

I’ve been through a lot of challenges in life and my journey to the US - and now to the Paralympic stage - hasn’t been an easy one. However, I've learned a new lesson every step of the way, and I’m excited to share those lessons with as many people as possible!

What an inspiring chat! Abbas was so open and shared his story with a uniquely optimistic outcome. Left me questioning how high I could set my own goals.

The more Abbas revealed about his story in this experience, from growing up without arms, through his journey as a refugee, then training to become a national and international competitive swimmer, the more inspired I became! I was hoping for some motivation and inspiration to get back in the pool, and this was so helpful.

This was a wonderful Experience with Abbas. He has such a powerful and inspiring story to share and the way he engaged all guests made it feel like a natural conversation between guests and host. We got to ask him lots of questions and he answered every single one. He had such a powerful message of hope to share and I'm excited to follow him during the Paralympics where he is competing this August - Good luck, Abbas!
