Fatemeh Hammami, an artist with disabilities (OKU) is not only worthy of admiration but also worthy of respect.
Hailing from Iran, Fatemah’s presence became well-known on social media after sharing her artwork, which she does on canvas by using only her right foot.
It is understood that up to 85% of Fatemeh’s body has been paralyzed since childhood and the only limb that is still functioning and can be controlled is her right leg.
Despite her disability, Fatemeh considers it a privilege and a strength. Fatemah’s artwork is impressive and often garners massive attention. Her paintings usually entail her favorite idols. As a hardcore football fan, Fatemeh’s name is no stranger to social media. Her talent and courage have touched the hearts of many football fans out there.
For the longest, Fatemeh kept the dream that renowned footballer Cristiano Ronaldo would see one of her paintings. Any recognition would provide great motivation to Fatemah.
The Al Nassr FC forward finally made Fatemah’s dreams come true at the club's headquarters in Tehran.
During the meeting, Fatemeh handed Ronaldo two portraits of her paintings which were produced using her feet.
Apart from portraits of Ronaldo, Fatemeh has previously also produced portraits of other players, such as Lionel Messi and football legend, Ali Daie.
