In a society dominated by men, where many women are still afraid to be photographed without asking permission from their husbands, things are changing.

In 2005 Magda experienced a terrible car accident, as a passenger. In most parts of the world, people in wheelchairs are condemned to isolation by authorities. While traveling around the planet I visited tens of countries where you don’t see them at all, in public areas. Why? Because in all those places, leaving your home in a wheelchair is almost an impossible mission due to that lack of infrastructure. But Magda wants to change the way people in wheelchairs are treated, at least in her country, through some amazing initiatives.

We live in a beautiful world and diversity is one of our greatest gifts. In the same time, this world became much more intolerant towards diversity, in the last years. But don’t lose hope! I’ve seen with my own eyes during my travels that there’s much more kindness in this world, than hate. We just have to notice it, share it with others and make this world a better place for our children.
