Dr. Malvika Iyer was 13-years old when a grenade exploded in her hands. Her hands and legs were badly damaged. She decided early in life that she would not let disability get in the way of her dreams. Her transformational story since then has been one of incredible Resilience. Malvika is now a Ph.D., her entire thesis typed with her finger-less hands. She motivates people across the world with her message that ‘The only disability in life is a bad attitude’ and inspires them to reach for the stars with the magical powers of the word ‘YET’.
