Even in the depths of despair, the world can be a warm place if you try your best to live life to the fullest.
Those are the words 22-year-old Jeong Eun-sook has lived her life by. She s busy drawing animation frames in her dormitory for her graduation project from Chungkang College of Cultural Industries in Icheon, Gyeonggi.
As a junior in the department of animation, Jeong has to create a 10-minute project; hers is titled The Outing.
But it s difficult for her to grasp the crayons because she can only use three fingers the index and middle fingers and thumb of her left hand. And even they don t have the strength to grasp the crayon properly.
But for Jeong, these three fingers are the most precious parts of her body.
Jeong injured her neck in a car accident when she was 9 years old. The accident paralyzed her below the shoulders except for those three fingers.
Jeong s roommate has to help her get out of bed and into her wheelchair every morning. When she needs to eat or go to the bathroom, she relies on others help.
I have no choice but to get help from a lot of people and I am very thankful. I can only manage the movement of the wheelchair with my fingers by using a control stick, Jeong said.
Sitting on her desk were two finished drawings from her film.
