Musharaf Asghar – My Story

My story begins the moment I woke up in the hospital bed realising my words were tremendously difficult to say. I was heartbroken. Sitting beside me was my distraught mother seeing me not able to get my words out. I felt embarrassed and confused. The journey to finding my voice began at this point and I remember it so vividly. I knew I had it within me to find what rightfully belonged to me.

Normal tasks felt like pushing water uphill with a fork! I didn’t understand as to why i was the only one feeling this way. Physically I seemed perfectly fine, but mentally the battle was brewing. I had my fair share of facing adversity and the old depression had arrived with a suitcase. I knew this was a battle I needed to overcome. A fight I would not turn down and give in to.

I dreamed. I believed. (Took some rest in between). I achieved.

As a keynote speaker, Mushy delivered an inspirational message of resilience, determination and positivity. His story is deeply personal, but so wonderfully motivational. His words come straight from the heart and we were moved by his journey. Mushy’s experiences resonated with all staff, empowering us to recognise the impact of what we do.
