A little boy was born without any limbs—no arms and no legs—yet he does not let anything stop him from creating a happy world of his own. A place where he can let his dreams soar, where he can be free!
Tiyo Satrio, from West Java, Indonesia, is unfortunate to have been born without limbs—but he is still able to move around as smoothly as a seal.
He is a PlayStation wizard, who has found his passion in his favorite hobby; it’s incredible how he uses his chin to maneuver the controls that have made him a worthy match for his opponents who often join in for a game.
Although he lives out his dreams in PlayStation games, life has not been kind to him. The reality of his physical disabilities, which have put him at a massive disadvantage, has caused him a lot of suffering and pain. Depression, resulting from fears and insecurities and lack of self-confidence, made him not want to attend school. Tiyo has a strong spirit though and has withstood the onslaught of depression very well.
According to his principal at the small special-needs school he regularly attends, he is intelligent and excels in maths and religious studies. When he was in grade 2, his intelligence level was that of grade 4 in academics.

As reported by Daily Mail, Tiyo enjoys a challenge and is a survivor. With his pen held in his mouth, he likes problem-solving, multiplication, and division exercises.
With his contagious laughter, he became a favorite among both students and teachers. He makes an effort to surmount his disabilities and has a great attitude, said his teacher.
Tiyo’s mom is very proud of him and loves him dearly. She allows him to play with the PlayStation in the mornings. His ride to school is by motorbike. After school, he is allowed to play some more. At night, before bed, he is allowed to play again.
Tiyo’s early days
Mrs. Satrio explains that she was not at all aware that anything was wrong with her baby while she was pregnant. During and after the birth, she also did not know that anything was wrong. The midwife refrained from saying anything and even said that all was well with the child.
Mrs. Satrio gave birth at midnight and was in a state of shock when she was told about the harsh truth in the late afternoon. Only time could help her come to terms with her child’s fate; she eventually learned to accept it.
His mom said in an interview with The Daily Mail in 2016: “I was surprised. I thought he would be normal like my other children then I have the youngest in that condition.”
However, Tiyo is a popular kid; his upbeat nature makes him an inspiration for his peers.

Initially, the boy often did not attend school due to chronic insecurities and self-confidence issues. With his good nature and free spirit, Tiyo regularly attends school. He gets pushed in his wheelchair, and sometimes, people carry him.
Tiyo’s mom also shared it’s a round-the-clock job taking care of him. The couple have other children, but they live spread out in Indonesia and aren’t always there to help.
Mrs. Satrio said that they are not able to leave the house in search of work as Tiyo needs them.
However, Tiyo is an amazing child with a strong spirit who continues his education and follows his dreams in the fantasy world of PlayStation.
It’s amazing how the will to survive against all odds is reflected in the life of this child.
