What student said about Les Lengyel


  • Les Lengyel’s speech taught me a lot, for example “don’t feel sorry for yourself”, and Don’t let your disabilities hold you back .I was really surprised to see that he felt so comfortable and very happy with his life and everything he achieved. it’s really encouraging to see Les work through life and achieve so much in his life, with a disability that most people wouldn’t even be able to get out of bed with.

  • I found all of the speakers very helpful but Les was the most inspiring to me because he continued most of his life with only one arm and didn’t let it hold him back. He demonstrated how if you work hard for what you want you can achieve your goals and reach your full potential, no matter what the odds. Finally,I want to thank all of the guests who took the time to share their lives with us and give us very valuable information.

  • Les Lengyel speech taught me a lot, things like “don’t feel sorry for yourself”, and I am surprised to see he feel so happy and content about his life, it is not easy for most handicapped people, it’s really encouraging to see somebody like him, it made me think about myself more deeply

  • Its amazing how someone like Les can get through as much pain as he went through because he had to and he didn’t give up.
  • What i learned from Les Lengyel is that there is no limit to what you can do in life as long as you believe in yourself.
