Cornelius Yalamu is eight years old and is of mixed Eastern Highlands and Morobe descent. He was diagnosed with cerebral palsy six months after birth.
“All his strength comes from his feet to draw and hold things. He can draw with his feet and he can also write with his feet,” says his mother as Cornelius looks up from his drawing.
