Nafisa, SA. "I don't want to restrict it (my message) to women with disabilities because I feel it's universal: You are what you believe you are. Never let others define you, unless you are in a dark place and can't see what shines in you. Be brave, crave and strive for a life that is good, rewarding and happy. Your abilities and brilliance can only be limited by you".
Nafisa works internationally to empower young people with disabilities through education & equal rights laws.
At the time of this image she was heavily pregnant, a few weeks later she gave birth to her first child, Aka, meaning 'Angel' in Swahili.
Nafisa is humble, infectiously happy & almost entirely blind. A wonderful example of a woman who has only grown stronger and focused on using her empathy to other women to in turn, help them to feel stronger.
