There are certain persons in life you meet and they make you appreciate your existence as no other thing in this world. Zuleika is one of them.
Zuleika is a unique girl. Powerful, courageous, yet subtle, feminine and gorgeous. She is all potential. She wakes up in the morning and lives and appreciates her life in a way no one I met does.
What makes her so unique is the fact that she had a very strong accident, which caused her to live life as a disabled girl. Yet, she is fully independent and one of the most positive and strong women I’ve met.
She is a walking lesson to all of us.
How can we wake up in the morning and not appreciate what we have? When there is people in this world who wake up everyday with limitations that are stronger than anything we’ve been through. How can we complain about been a little chubby, a little old… when all we need to face our day to day problems is ATTITUDE and a smile.
This girl is a walking lesson. And I adored photographing her inner beauty and documenting such a powerful human being. I love her story and her will power to keep living her life, even with no leg or arm.
What’s a missing leg for Zuleika, is 5 more kilos for us. What’s a missing hand for this gorgeous human being, is a bad weather day. Do you get the lesson?
Being disable is a beautiful thing most of the times. I’t a testimonial for each one of us, that obstacles can make us stronger and appreciate every single thing in our lives.
I believe, strongly, that people like her are walking angels on this earth. Angels that are present to remind us of the beauty in the little things. It’s a wake up call to being more grateful and more courageous.
I love you Zuleika. You are an inspiration for lots of us.
