Argentina (Buenos Aires)
Physical limitations don’t necessarily mean a limited life. All that is needed is a new perspective – and Argentine Pitu Blazquez is happy to provide that lift in life.
A total of 5.1 million people with physical disabilities are living in the South American country. The well-known acrobat helps others to understand the challenges they face in everyday life by running an acrobatics school for people with disabilities in his Bahía Blanca, Buenos Aires studio.
Watch how his rewarding work and the students’ “integrity, guts and courage” move him to tears in this AJ+ video. He asks one of the students if the class made him feel like a bird and he answers yes, “I feel free.”
