    Reported by:

    On the mountain trail. Milena was collecting sticks and jumped on the stones. She did not look at her feet and tripped over. She hurt in her belly, but she did not give up, wiped her tears, took the stick in her hand, and went on. My strong girl. When Milena was 3 years old she panicked when she saw a small dot on her skin. I taught her to control emotions, deal with obstacles. Today, looking at her, I realize that all my life I have to work on my character and face failure. Go ahead.

    What a wonderful portrait that says so much about Milena. The photograph captures her toughness and the angle - from below - makes us sense how heroic she is. Well done!
