Interview: Natacha Hippolyte
For the first time, we had the opportunity of publishing a short interview on Natacha,member of the YWDEP, who was elected as Committee Member of the Commonwealth Children and Youth Disability Network. Natacha shared her experience as a young woman living with cerebral palsy, and what improvements she would like to see in the future. Natacha believes in her dreams and taught us a wonderful lesson about not giving up:
"I AM HUMAN, A DREAMER, A BELIEVER AND ABOVE ALL, AN ACHIEVER.”
