Here is her story:

Clara has been diagnosed with DiGeorge Syndrome and Autism. She spent her first 16 months in hospital, has gone through multiple surgeries since she was two weeks due to the complications with her syndrome. Before she was two, she had difficulty connecting with people, was in a world of her own, and two years later she was also diagnosed with autism. Clara also had a lot of physical complications, and could not walk till she was four. She never spoke until she was six.

However Clara thrived in the Intensive Multi Treatment Intervention program based in Toronto, and has blossomed into a lively dancing queen who always loves an audience!!!
