Award of Excellence
Mikael Andersson was born without arms and legs. Despite his disability Mikael has learned to do things that others take for granted such as walking, swimming and driving a car. As a child he was told by doctors that he would be in a hospital for the rest of his life, and that he would never learn to sit up by himself. Michael is a successful lecturer and travels throughout the Nordic countries to inspire other people that most things are possible. When he is not working, he lives a normal life with his wife Christina and their three children, Simon, Linus and Sara in Gothenburg, Sweden.
