Pretending to be someone you are not, it's so easy to impress others, and yet become your very own, biggest disappointment.

Udając kogoś, kim nie jesteś możesz z łatwością zaimponować innym i stać się swoim własnym, największym rozczarowaniem.

Anna Czaman is a disability activist.

I was born totally blind. I was only 2 years old when a miracle happened and I got some useful vision, even though the doctors kept saying there's no chance for me to see.

At the age of 11 I started singing and spent a big part of my life performing and making music. As a kid, I never accepted the fact that I was different. Always pretended to be someone I was not and that would eventually put me in trouble.

I finally embraced and accepted my disability in year 2018. In 2019 I travelled to Belgium for my ESC/Erasmus+ project, where I got to work with people with learning disabilities.

Throughout all those years, I have changed a lot and I would like to spread awareness concerning my life as an independent, disabled woman and show everyone that it's okay to feel bad about who you are. Self-love and acceptance won't come in one day. It's a long journey.
