Dejana Backo, an armless woman from birth, demonstrates that no task is insurmountable

People have an incredible ability to achieve anything they set their minds to, and Dejana Backo is living proof of that.

From the moment of Dejana’s birth, it was discovered that she had a rare birth defect called Phocomelia syndrome. It is characterized by severe malformation of the extremities, which led to her arms being severely shortened. Even though Dejana had to face obstacles since her very birth, that didn’t stop her from living her life to the fullest.

While Dejana is only 30 years old, by now, she has become a talented artist, ParaTaekwondo world champion, fitness coach, and super mom, proving that no challenge is impossible when met with determination.
