“At the age of 16 years old, I was hanging out with my friends, whispering and laughing about the guy I had my latest crush on, listening to music, going to the movies and planning my next weekend. Not at all did I have to think about getting myself up in the morning, taking myself off to school, coming home and then going grocery shopping to then cook myself dinner” - Tanya Vella
