Annie~Joy writes: She Gave Many Reasons To Live And Make Life Better.

It's sad to acknowledge a soul when he or she is dead. It could have being better when she was alive. You might not known her but many did. She was born in South Africa and lived there. She was the first black child to be diagnosed with PROGERIA and the doctors had always predicted her dead for quite long. She was predicted to die at the age of 13years but lived to her 18years. Her life was filled with miracles. She finally kicked the bucket few days after she celebrated her 18th birthday. She was a media personality and a Great motivational speaker. 

She was called "ONTLAMETSE PHALATSE ", I saw the need to  base on her story to motivate you. She might had felt less privileged because of the genetic disease that gave her that physical appearance. Yet she didn't give up and didn't underestimate herself rather she was motivating souls . She definitely might have met rejection on the way, one way or the other because of her looks but today the world celebrates her. What makes you think you cannot achieve your goals? What makes you think you are going to be rejected if you show determination to fulfill your dreams and aspirations? The comments I received from sharing her pictures, were scary, but I bet she had being told I'm her face, several times.
She was very special to the president of South Africa, despite her unique look.  I want her life story, to be a motivation for us all as individuals. It is never too late to accomplish your mission. She was just 18 years old, but left a great legacy behind for is all touching and inspirational memories. I know after reading this piece you are going to be proud of her. You don't need to let financial issues and the feeling of rejection discourage you from achieving your goals. When it comes to dream ignore excuses and pursue it. Fight for it!

When someone sees you  fighting for it, that person will join. Don't sit without doing nothing about your dreams and expect someone to discover them and help you achieve it. You need to take that bold step and prove your desperateness for it for the world to join.

"PHALATSE" could have used her sickness as an excuse and achieved nothing for herself. To be honest someone wouldn't wish to go close to her because of her appearance but she was able to win the hearts of many and drew them very closer . After reading this piece, what are you waiting for? You don't need to be old before you start working towards your dreams. Start working now because tomorrow might not be apportioned unto you. She has made history by being the first black girl to be diagnosed with PROGERIA and with that, she has left a great inspirational trait. Don't give excuses again when it has got to do with your dreams and aspirations. Everything is possible and can come to reality only if you make it, It depends on you!

She was a great young lady. Her moment didn't last long but her memories will live forever. Take this inspiration.
