Agatha – that’s how she rolls!

(2 opinie klienta)

The first educational book of its kind on the market for both young and old. It’s a story that inspires and gives hope, conveying the message that a person in a wheelchair can lead a full life, be active, have passions, family, friends, and pursue dreams. The titular character, Agata, believes that her disability doesn’t limit her in any way. On the contrary, she sees it as a state of mind rather than a limitation of the body. The narrator is a fully-abled girl, Zosia, who is Agata’s niece. All the characters are exceptional individuals, moving on wheelchairs yet very active, loving life, and teaching us at every step how to embrace life to the fullest.

The inspiration for creating the book came from Agata Roczniak, a very real person. She has been living with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) since birth. Moving in a wheelchair, she doesn’t view it as a weakness but rather as a strength. She has befriended her limitations, breaking barriers to self-realization. Agata is a graduate in finance and banking, as well as philosophy and psychology. For over 25 years, she has been active professionally, initially as a wheelchair model and currently as the President of the Diversum Foundation. She inspires a change in the perception of people with disabilities. Privately, she is a fulfilled woman, wife, and mother.

    This December (2023) i was proud and lucky to be gifted a hard copy of an amazing book: “AGATHA – THAT’S HOW SHE ROLLS!”.

    First time i read this book, it was simply as a good, great, interesting and amazingly well told story, just another good book. And that alone was enough to give the book 5 stars.

    When i read the book for the second & third time, i started to reflect on the real people behind the book, namely Agatha herself, her friends and family.

    By living her life as she does, Agatha is an inspiring person to the entire world, life has only the limitations you imagine for yourself. Agatha has no limits, Agatha has inspiration, drive and determination for herself beyond imagination.

    The parents of Agatha, her close family, her schools & teachers, her employers, her friends and the society that so wonderfully embraced her incredible energy, should all be given not 5 stars, but 5.000 stars of energy,inspiration, love and approval.

    Think, are you reaching as high as Agatha ?

    This morning, I saw a “wheeler dealer” while shopping at the mall. I must confess that my perception of “wheeler dealers” – people who are moving around in wheelchairs – quite changed after reading this inspiring and wonderful book. “Wheeler dealers” often do much more than able-bodied people!
    Agata’s story is just incredible!
    This story which is a must read for the whole family is showing that the barriers that we have to achieve our dreams and goals are also mental barriers.
    Last but not least, the love that surrounds us is a real catalyst for realising our individual potential beyond all limits.
