Ahmad “Yoga” Prayoga lives his life without both of his hands and legs.
Yoga is known as a survivor because he was not born with his condition. He once had all of his limbs but a work accident in 2015 changed his life forever. Shortly after the accident, Yoga, at 19 years old, had to have his hands and legs amputated.
Though his limbs might be gone, his spirit for life is still going strong. He continued going to school until he graduated, then pursued his studies in industrial engineering at Cut Meutia University in Medan, North Sumatra.
The second child of Sugiono and Dwi Sri Rahayu, Yoga fills his days painting using his mouth.
Instead of losing hope, Yoga has looked toward the future, saying he wants to inspire and share a positive message with those who have disabilities or different abilities.
Yoga, who hails from East Sambirejo village in Tembung, Deli Serdang, North Sumatra, is hoping to hold a painting exhibition this year. He currently has more than 100 pieces in his art collection.
“I wish to hold an exhibition this year. For now, I have to save more money to buy a canvas and color paints,” Yoga said.
