Lidia López

Born on March 13, 1970, in Mexico, Lidia de Jesús Cháidez López is the oldest of seven brothers. She led a normal life until the age of thirteen when she met with a car accident.

At first, it was very difficult for her and her family, adding to it the enormous indifference and social discrimination she faced as a differently-abled. Lidia always liked drawing even as a child and at the age of sixteen, she drew with her mouth for the first time.
