African brilliance from Cameroon. 
24-year-old Arthur Zang, a Cameroonian engineer, invented the Cardiopad. The Cardiopad is a portable, touch screen device that enables heart examinations such as the electrocardiogram to be performed at remote locations while results of the test, are transferred wirelessly to specialists who can interpret them.
Arthur Zang also became a finalist in the 2012 CPS Distinguished Award for the Sciences.

But you’ll never hear about him on CNN, MSNBC or FOX.

                ANON THIS IS FOR YOU

my whole life i have been put down because of a choice i made. no one said i would amount to anything. no one has ever given me a hand out. no one has ever said it’s ok to hurt. no one said i would do anything. they all said i was worthless. anyone from my ex to blood relatives. no one ever saw anything in me. I was killed on oct 22nd 2011 and revived after five minutes only to awaken and be told that i would never walk again. 3 doctors and two nurses told me that everything from my waist down was useless. they told me to not even give the idea a chance. one year later and i have beaten homelessness, i have beaten death, i have beaten paralysis. I, a nobody, a broke down gangster. I don’t fight because I am strong. I don’t fight because I am brave. I fight because no one ever fought for me. Anon I know life is fucking with you right now and nothing seems worth it and no one is fighting for you but know this. I FIGHT FOR YOU.

so if you have no one to fight for fight for me too.

This is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. 

Don’t ever give up

True essence of humanity.
