Patrice was born different, without right hand and is thankful for his family and friends that he is someone normal who just has one hand. Patrice quickly realized throughout his life that it raised questions and provoked dialogue. Patrice shares that his career in communication has allowed him to see that often people with disabilities were represented at the extremes: situations of dependency, illness or on the contrary exceptional courses. Patrice decided to launch first illustrations representing people living normaly, defending his vision of disability: People with disabilities are different, but it's normal to be different!
Patrice started normal-persons.com clothes dedicated to physically different people. To let us be proud to be how we are born, proud of who we are.
