I'm Not A Child, I'm 20 | Living Differently

čas přidán 21. 12. 2017
Michelle Kish is 20 years old, but is regularly mistaken for a child. The reason? She suffers from an extremely rare genetic disorder called Hallermann-Streiff Syndrome which affects just one in 5 million people.
Michelle’s symptoms include a cranial-facial disorder, cataracts, and dwarfism. Here, she talks about her frustrations, as well as her career plans and what character traits she’d like in a boyfriend.

  • Voice acting! Yes!! Go girl

  • She’s so cute 🥰

  • Just say she will make you smile 💗💗

  • I really wish she's got a boyfriend who has the same or some sort of conditions with whom she could really be at ease and feel no different. Because it might be a little hard for her to find a boyfriend who is, you know, a normal person. No offense, just looking out for Michelle and I just couldn't say what I was really trying to say, in part due to my limited english
