Wat je gaat doen

Life is an unpredictable thing, oftentimes presenting us with challenges that seem impossible to overcome. But if I’ve learned anything from my experience, it’s that despite how difficult the circumstances are, we all have incredible inner strength and are capable of inspiring acts of resilience.

My name is Ibrahim Al-Hussein, and I’m a paralympic swimmer from Syria and an Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 hopeful. In this unique storytelling experience, I will discuss my life journey, the road I took to the Olympics, and how I remained hopeful throughout all the obstacles I faced in life. You’ll get to know more about my hometown, the circumstances under which I lost my leg, how I became a refugee, what it was like for me to start a new life in Greece, and most importantly, how my passion for swimming remained a North Star anchoring me to my childhood Olympic dreams. We will think about the power of positivity, how I turn every No to a Yes, and why it is important to always believe in yourself, and challenge the physical and mental boxes others try to put you in, when it comes to your own strength and potential.

Join me as we think through the refugee experience, the power of sports in overcoming adversity, and the importance of challenging preconceived notions about refugees and athletes with disabilities.

My name is Ibrahim, a paralympic swimmer & basketball player from Syria, and recipient of the Whang Youn Dai Overcome Prize during the Paralympic Games in Rio.

My dreams, my goals, and my ambitions were shattered when I lost my leg in Syria and suddenly became a refugee. However, I kept persevering. I did not have a home or anyone to help me, but I kept going and learned to think beyond physical disability. By doing so, it’s allowed me to achieve many things, both physically and mentally, that have helped define my 20-year journey.

Now I live in a new country where, at first, I didn't speak the language, nor did I have my family with me. Despite all of my hardship, I've endured, and I want others to benefit from my experiences.

With the strength of will and the desire to succeed, I’ve achieved my dreams.

And you can too.

We connected with Ibrahim for Father’s Day and were blown away by his story. Having only returned from the Tokyo Paralympics 2 days earlier, his story of perseverance and optimism was inspiring to us all. We valued learning about the plight of people from refugee backgrounds with disabilities, and were in awe of his advocacy work in this area. Highly recommended!
