Samuel Farrugia, a 12-year-old boy, who cannot see and who moved and inspired everyone who met him, has written his first book.

Samuel, who likes dinosaurs, wrote a magical story called ‘Samuel and the magic tooth.’

Interviewed on Indepth by The Malta Independent Editor-in-Chief Rachel Attard, Samuel said that he managed to write his first book because today’s technology helped him even though he can’t see.

He Said that, “I love reading and I manage to do this by listening to a lot of audio books.” 

Samuel who has a lot of aspirations and projects in mind said that, “one of the reasons why I decided to write this book is because it was a promise I made to President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca.” 

Samuel, who was one of the main protagonists in this year’s and last year’s l-Istrina, lost his eyesight due to cancer. 

Indepth will be uploaded tomorrow on www.independent.com.mt
