Here is the story of #INTIFMIdol , Steven Wong- Think Positive, Stay Cheerful. 

At the age of 12 years old, Mr. Steven Wong got his right leg amputated and since then he struggled to live his life and always asked himself why this happened to him.

The tragedy incident happened when he was 12 year-old. He was knocked down by a 10 tones lorry. He was admitted to hospital immediate after the accident, due to the bad condition, he has to amputate his right leg in order to survive. Mr Steven Wong continue to stay in hospital for 50 days before discharged from hospital. His parents have given special attention to him and hope he will recovered soon but it wasn’t an easy task.

“Every day I woke up I saw my right leg missing, I wish it was just a dream; but unfortunately it was not. I really feel bad to what happened to me, and I used to lock myself in a room and ask why this incident happened to me and don’t want to talk and answer to anyone. I felt lost and don’t know what to do. My parents care me but I still can’t recovered fully in terms of emotionally.” Said Mr. Steven Wong.

Being a low self-esteem and lack of confident, he never told his parents on how he feel. Mr. Steven Wong realized that he was still very young and he won’t want to live the rest of his life sadly. Thank God he loves to read books and he begun to read a lots of personal development books to help him to build up his confident again.
