HA NOI (VNS) — Australian motivational speaker Nick Vujicic, who was born without limbs, will participate in Toa Sang Nghi Luc Viet, meaning bright Vietnamese Energy, a writing contest about disadvantaged people.

Launched in November 2013 with an aim to honour energetic disadvantaged people, and to raise the awareness of young people about having a responsible and righteous lifestyle, the contest received nearly 2,000 entries from across the country.

Vujicic will visit Viet Nam next month to participate as a special guest in a gala event which will be held in HCM City's Phu Tho Gymnasium on May 21 and in Ha Noi's My Dinh Stadium on May 24.

The inspirational speaker had been welcomed warmly by the media and the public during his first visit to Viet Nam in May 2013. He had addressed tens of thousands of people in both HCM City and Ha Noi, including many local disadvantaged people who surprised him by their "enthusiastic response", according to Vujicic.

Three books written by Vujicic – Life Without Limits, Unstoppable, and Limitless – have also been published in the Vietnamese language, and have become best-sellers in the country. — VNS
