Nick overcame several challenges in his life, including the fact that he was born without any limbs. His struggle began shortly after his birth when his own mother declined to see or embrace the limbless baby, however she eventually accepted him claiming that God had a plan for him.
He was bullied at school to the point that he was afraid for his life since he saw no point in it. His emotions of powerlessness and loneliness drove him to attempt suicide by drowning in the bathtub when he was just ten years old.

Nick, on the other hand, always maintained an upbeat attitude, which enabled him to overcome struggles, discover essential concepts, define his goal and transform problems into opportunities. In high school, things became a whole lot better. Nick was selected as the captain of his school (MacGregor State School).
When he was 13, he injured his foot, which he used for swimming and writing, and it became a pivotal moment for the young lad who had struggled with loneliness for years. This incident taught him to be grateful for his strengths instead of concentrating on his limitations.
His unwavering faith lifted his spirits, took away all of his worries about his unknown future and gave him optimism and confidence. He was certain that God had a wonderful and meaningful plan for his life.
Nick has climbed over every stumbling block that life has thrown in his way up to this moment. According to him, disability is defined as something that prevents you from doing anything. And there isn't anything in his life that he hasn't discovered he can't accomplish.
