Jorge Dyksen is one of those people capable of inspiring entire generations. Born in Panama, Jorge is a keen footballer despite not having either hands or feet.
As a child, he left his native country and went to the USA, where he was welcomed by his foster parents. Living in New Jersey ever since, Jorge leads practically a normal life. Indeed, despite his disability, Jorge goes to school like any other boy his age, drives his own vehicle and immerses himself fully in his favourite sport: football.
There is no doubt that playing the beautiful game helps give Jorge the energy he needs to tackle the future with optimism, the youngster having fun out on the pitch and enjoying forming part of a team.
We filmed our meeting with Jorge, so that you too could get to know this extraordinary young man.
