I had the privilege to attend Leona’s 5th birthday over the weekend. I got to know her through my documentary research 2 years ago.

She’s special because she has Trisomy 18. When doctors were not optimistic, she has a mother who refused to give up on her. Apart from my mother, this mother is one of the strongest women I know.

Thanks to her, Leona thrived and celebrated one year after another of life.

Their existence is a triumphant celebration of life, hope and resilience.

Grateful for life with my Samsung S6.
