Nick Vujicic has inspired millions with his story and now he’s ready to make his TV debut on TLC.

Vijuicic, 32, was born without arms and legs as a result of a rare congenital condition called Tetra-amelia syndrome. In the new special which follows the daily lives of Vijuicic, his wife and son, cameras document how the 32-year-old father overcomes the challenges of being limbless.

“All my life I’ve been faced with different obstacles and I’ve had to be creative to overcome them,” Vujicic says in the exclusive clip.

“If I could help my family by me helping myself, I’m going to find a way to do that,” he adds.

While Vujicic still requires help with daily tasks, he’s able to shower, brush his teeth, and change his clothes on his own revealing one of his biggest fears growing up was being a “burden to those around him.”

Born Without Limbs airs Wednesday June 17 (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.
