SINGAPORE: Former national shooter, Aishah Samad, will be flying off to Scotland on September 28 to fix on a pair of advanced prosthetic hands.
She contracted a severe bacterial infection in July 2012 which eventually led to the amputation of her arms and legs.
The 41-year-old mother of two is excited at the prospect of being able to live life normally with prosthetic hands.
She says she is aiming to start shooting again by the end of the year, and to participate in the 2016 Paralympic Games.
But the 2003 SEA Games bronze medallist is also aware of the challenges she might be facing.
"My worries are...can this hand that I'm getting serve the purpose that I need in shooting. Obviously it can make me able to eat or drink on my own but can it pull the trigger? Because pulling a trigger is not an easy job," she said.
