Good Morning Sunday: Richie Parker – An Engineer with No Hands, Only Dreams


Richie Parker

“I can’t say that there’s things I can’t do. Just things that I haven’t done yet.” Richie Parker

Richie Parker was born without arms, but that did not stop him from doing things normal kids could do. Richie in his own way chalked out a normal life for himself.

He never listened to people telling him what he could not do and never let his physical limitations control his life and future. His never say die attitude and perseverance helped him live a normal life and become an engineer.

Since the last 8 years Richie works as an engineer for NASCAR’s most successful team – Hendrick Motorsports. He has helped designs cars for champion drivers.

The below clip created by ESPN captures Richie’s wonderful story, an awesome inspiration for all of us.

Never limit yourself and your thoughts.

Have a Super Sunday and A Great Week Ahead 🙂
