get to know me
i can think, even in three languages
Hi everyone :-)
I'm Clara, I was born in Florence, Italy, in 2006, and I had a stroke in my mom's womb. Yes, the safest place in the world, as my dad always says!
I started walking at three years old, and doctors always said I would be useless. But here I am today, doing many cool things and enjoying life!
I can't write, read, or speak. Yes, I can't write directly with my hands, but I can think, even in three languages (Portuguese, English, and Italian). I'm tired of letting others speak for me, so I decided to step in and help my mom present myself this time.
Life is challenging, especially in school. I wanted to have friends and be accepted as I am, but it did not happen. The more life rolls through, the more exclusion happens!
I am blessed in life, and I'm grateful. My dad is my hero. He pushes me to do something others don’t, making me happy.
dream to make things come true
My mom is the one that never, ever gave up on me. She is there, trying to find solutions to create a space for me and others in society. To be sincere, sometimes I think it is too much, but I realize that without her dream to make things come true and all her work, my life would be without value in the society, so I think I need to follow her and be happy for that.
i can't understand well the proportion of everything that has happened and is happening in my life, but i know that i'm having fun; i'm traveling the world, meeting new people, and trying to make friends, and, i feel hope!
i feel loved by my community
I feel blessed more than ever that Jesus is with me. I feel loved by my community, and I love being between you, meeting you on the streets, having video calls, and interacting.
When I paint and draw, I can be 100% myself. I like so much to see my artwork hanging on your walls. It is like I can see a part of me in the canvases, and now it is out there. I'm thrilled when someone buys my art, I feel I have value; I think I'm someone who matters.
my brother davi
PS: I forgot to say that I love my brother Davi, now he is becoming a teenager. Sometimes it is annoying, but Davi makes me laugh, and I love the exhibitions where he is selling and talking with the people because it is too fun.
