"The very first day Nikola and Johan discover that they have a common interest. They both like music. While Nikola unpacks the guitar Johan runs into the garden and start looking for wooden sticks. He carves them into drum sticks. A chair turned backwards will have to do as a drum kit. Together they then perform with music and song, Nikola on guitar, Johan on drums. Both sing - even though they do not understand each other's language.
- I understand him well, says Nikola. I can read his words through his eyes."
From the autobiography "Excluded, outnumbered , accepted and welcomed " by Rasmus Isaksson (Recito , 2009)
Welcome to rasmusisaksson.se
I started this website because I was running a buisness a few years ago. I was selling lectures, workshops and consultation within the area of diversity. Since 2013 I am the president of DHR, an organization for the rights of persos with reduced mobility.
I have a disability called Spina bifida or Myelomeningocele. I am a wheelchair user and had surgery as a small child to insert a shunt since I was affected by hydrocephalus.
My two major hobbies are sports and travel. I practice sports 5-6 times a week and have been competing with the Swedish national team in a sport called para ice hockyey. I have two bronze medals from the Paralympics i Nagano 1998 and Salt Lake City 2002. I also have a bronze medal from the world championship in USA in the year of 2000. Through my involvement in sports I got to travel a lot. My goal is to visit 100 countries. Travel for me is a way of learning more about myself, other people, other cultures, and life itself. I like the idea of challenging myself and challenging how other people percieves my limitations.
Other facts about me is that I have worked one year withín the tourism business, accessible tourism to be specific, and that I written an autobiography called "Excluded, outnumbered , accepted and welcomed " (Recito , 2009).
