Girl, born February 2003
Dina is 10 years old and has epilepsy but it is not very often that she has an episode (2-3 per month). When she does, it only lasts a couple of minutes and her arms will get stiff and her eyes will shake. Sweet foods are a trigger. Dina really love to run and sometimes she is even the fastest in her class. She can count very high and write numbers. Dina is a little behind her friends when it comes to learning, but it is probably because she cannot go to a formal school due to her epilepsy.
Dina’s caregivers say that she is very hospitable, kind, and helpful. She likes to help clean up after the younger kids in the orphanage. Her favorite thing to do is SING!
