Marlena Katene is an average young woman with the usual dreams, hopes and fears. Marlena also has what she calls a “unique point of difference”. Due to complications during birth, Marlena was born with a form of Cerebral Palsy. It causes her body to constantly move. She is wheelchair bound and communicates non-verbally.

Cerebral Palsy is a lifelong disability. Like many disabilities, it is often misunderstood.

While it can result in intellectual disabilities, it doesn’t always. For people like Marlena it is frustrating that just because she communicates in a different way people assume that she is “dumb”.

This is a story about a woman with a sense of humour, living life to the fullest, grateful that she can interact and be a part of the world around her.
