Victoria Bueno said “We are more than our disabilities, so we have to chase our dreams"

Born without arms, Bueno’s dream of being a dancer seemed painfully unrealistic – especially in a small town in rural Brazil, where her disability made her a social curiosity.

“People would line up outside the house to see her,” said her mother Wanda, 39, still hurt as she recalled the insensitivity. “They would lift up her sleeves to look.” But Bueno, now 18, focused on her assemblés, pirouettes and other technical challenges. She took up jazz and tap as well.
