  Video. In this clip from The Homemakers Project Xavi, 19, explains how he finds pleasure in the littlest things and focuses on his whole family.

He is the youngest of a family of nine children and is in the first year of a medical degree at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, Spain. At age 3 he was diagnosed with degenerative muscular dystrophy, and since then his physical capacity has declined. Little by little he has lost his mobility, and currently gets about in an electric wheelchair. Although he needs other people’s help for everything, he is a happy person. He enjoys family conversations around the table, finds pleasure in the littlest things, and is focused on his whole family.
