Her right arm is everything to her. It is her only limb that works.

Miss Nurul Nabilah Mohamad Fuad (above), 22, uses it to operate her motorised wheelchair everywhere she goes.

She also types single-handedly on a keyboard with one hand for her Mobile & Network Services course in Temasek Polytechnic, which she will graduate from next week.

The school has picked her for its first recipient of the Ngee Ann Kongsi Most Outstanding Overcomer Award, which recognises a student who has demonstrated strong perseverance to overcome setbacks in their lives.

Miss Nurul was born with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita, a condition where the newborn’s joints are curved, resulting in decreased flexibility of the joints.
