Tünde Lukács

1. What trait describes you the best?

Fighter. (sometimes it happens that this fight manifests itself against me)


2. During the introduction or when talking about yourself, how important do you think it is to mention that you are disabled?

My disability is not something I am ashamed of, it is always first in my introduction, without it I would not be me.


3. What are you most proud of?

I am proud of myself and I am proud that I love enjoying my own life, I enjoy to exist.


4. If you could change something, what would it be?

I wouldn’t change anything, everything is as good as it was and is, my future depends on me.


5. What are your plans? What about your dreams?

I entrust my plans to God, I would still have something to tell about my dreams because they always were and will be. Most importantly, I dare to dream and take on things, I am not afraid of something new or starting again, life is a wonderful adventure and our dreams make it exciting.


6. What role did society play in the path to your successful fulfillment? (this can be negative, but it can also be positive)

I never let anyone influence me, there were always positive things as well as negative things about society. Sometimes people were an obstacle, sometimes a way out for me, all I can say is that I felt loved and they loved to be with me, I got help from them and I was an example to them.


7. Why and how important do you think healthy people should understand their injured peers?

I’m saying it’s not the point of who’s injured and who’s healthy, what can be considered in a person is just love. We do not need understanding, we need equality between us and acceptance. I always say that where more than two people live in one place, there is a need for harmony so that war does not break out.


8. What do you usually do in this regard?

I give people a chance to get to know each other, and let them see that it is not a person’s disability that matters in this world, but what we do in our lives.


9. If you could send a message to those who are less accepting, what would that message be?

My message would be simple: put on my shoes and walk in them, then pull back on yours and decide which one is more comfortable for you!


10. Why is this your favorite photo – tell us about it, where and when, and under what circumstances was it taken?

This photo was taken a year ago, at a time when fear and prohibition occurred in people’s lives during a pandemic. After half a year of confinement, my daughter and I went out to the village, where after so much time we felt the taste of freedom again, the beauty of nature, there I realized that fear and confinement are greater disabilities for people than a disease.
