Cagliari, November 27 - Despite physical
disabilities that left him able to communicate solely with his
eyes, a 27-year-old has graduated with honours from university
in Cagliari, the capital city of Sardinia.
Paolo Puddu, who has paralysis in all his limbs, completed
his degree with honours by writing a thesis on eliminating
barriers to the disabled in air travel.
Puddu, who intends to work as a tourism professional, said
he was "very excited" by his achievements.
"It's the most beautiful day of my life," he said, spelling
the letters of his sentences with his eyes connecting to a
computer.
"There is the professional level, but also the achievement
on a personal level. I'm very excited".
With some assistance, Puddu lives an independent life.
"We are proud of Paolo," said Francesca Palmas of the
Association of Children with Brain Injuries (ABC) in Sardinia.
His family watched the convocation ceremony with emotion.
"I am proud to have this son," his mother Susanna said
later.
"Paolo is a strong boy, he never bowed to suffering".
