We take for granted to see and hear… I would like to introduce you to Mireia who suffers from deafblindness due to a hereditary disease called Usher Syndrome, but that does not prevent her from enjoying life to the fullest. Her enthusiasm, strength and attitude embody what Philomena stands for >> from the Greek Philomenēs (lover of strength).
“I want to show the world that deafblind people and people with other disabilities are a valuable part of society.” Mireia Mendoza
Mireia is wearing Azalea set in size S.
