Juniasih

is a 16 year old girl who living in dire poverty with her father and extended family following the death of her mum.

She had a congenital lower leg abnormality which caused her extreme pain due to open sores, distress and social isolation. She refused to attend school as she was very embarrassed by the way she looked and to avoid bullying. She made the very brave decision to have her lower leg amputated and soon after received a prosthetic leg.

She is now a very empathetic role model for teenagers pre amputation and enjoying her chef training course so she can achieve her dream of working in the hospitality industry once qualified.
