Javier W. Barbieri

Life can change in an instant. It happened to me. My name is Javier W. Barbieri and I am a systems analyst and software developer from Perú. Due to a severe infection, I lost my left leg below the knee. Undoubtedly, that was the toughest time of my life.

In situations like this, it becomes evident who is really on your side, and you come to know who your true friends and relatives are. Even when the situation seemed unbearable, I learned from my circumstance and began to rely totally and completely on God.

Today, I am happy to say that I have successfully completed the rehab process. I realized that the only limits are in our minds. If we move beyond those, we can do everything!

I have shared my experiences in my new book entitled “It Is Too Soon To Give Up”. Through the writing process, I learned, day-by-day, the real value of resilience. I had to start over after a very hard situation, and I hope to inspire confidence in others to persevere through the tough times.

I hope that my story encourages you to become the best version of you
