LEGO prosthetic designer David Aguilar: The only thing that matters is to keep fighting for your dreams

David Aguilar, otherwise known as “Hand Solo”, visited the recently inaugurated IE Tower as part of the School of Human Sciences and Technology Speaker Series.

During the event, David Aguilar spoke with students on the importance of perseverance in the face of adversity: “The only thing that matters is to keep fighting for your dreams, stand up for yourself and treat everyone with respect.”

Aguilar was born with Poland syndrome, which affected the development of his right arm. He began his journey of designing, building, and programming prosthetics at the age of nine after being gifted a Lego set. Now at the age of twenty-two, he has completed four ‘MK’ Lego prosthetics that have received praise from the likes of Charlie Wen from Marvel Studios and NASA.
