As most of you may already know (thanks to my endless stream of birthday month snaps and texts), the 23rd of March is when I get to celebrate my 22nd birthday.
On this day, each year, i’m constantly reminded of how fortunate and blessed I am to have had such a comfortable life - most of which I have spent in a setting that has been incredibly conducive to learning and personal development. Unfortunately, not all children are as fortunate as me. Growing up as a child with special needs, with lack of access to education and in the absence of a supportive, inclusive and empathetic community can be incredibly challenging.
This year, in lieu of gifts, id love for you all to please consider making a small donation to the Ankura Foundation - a non-profit organization that works tirelessly to create customized intervention plans, learning modules and inclusive communities for the education and upliftment of underprivileged children and children with special healthcare needs.
My association with the Ankura Foundation has been brief but my support for the incredible work they’re doing is unwavering so any donation you make would mean the world to me and the kids. Please reach out to me via any of the mediums listed below if you have any questions about the foundation and the work they do:
