        Good day! My name is Gabriele. I am a 15-year-old teenager-an ordinary child with endless dreams, desires, with huge plans for the future and with steel-firm faith that everything will be fine... Only those challenges, in my everyday life, are much more than those of an ordinary child. I have been diagnosed with muscular atrophy. I have not been able to walk since I was 5 years old. My family is my help, shelter, inspiration and motivation in thinking, hobbies, sports, and searching for talents within myself. I exercise intensively in the swimming pool, in the playground, I attend the Šiauliai Art School, and there I can fully realize myself. I want to be happy that I am very successful in this field and I think I will surprise many more in the future. Of course, science is definitely not in the background. Serious problems also contributed to all the challenges - I was diagnosed with a skeletal bite anomaly. It makes chewing difficult, as a result, the digestive system suffers, breathing is troublesome, and healthy teeth wear out. Orthognathic treatment (jaw surgery) is necessary, thanks to which I would have a correct bite, eliminate facial asymmetry and stop tooth wear. Unfortunately, the cost of surgery is really out of my family's reach. Please, who can contribute to my health and dreams of tomorrow, and I, when I sell my first painting...I promise, I will definitely help another child who needs such help!
