I chose Amanda because of her immense strength of character and love of life. She is an inspiration to all who come into contact with her. Amanda is the true example of beauty. She was born with a hereditary disease called muscular dystrophy, which gradually decreases her muscle mass in her legs and replaces it with scar tissue. This, and the fact that she lost her mother at the age of 12, never breaks her down. She is always beaming with hope, love, and strength for life. Amanda Hollman has muscular dystrophy, but she definitely is not muscular dystrophy. She has gone through countless hardships and pulled through every time with a smile on her face. She is one of the strongest women I know, and I hope, through these photographs, that all may aspire to become as beautiful and full of life as Amanda. She is a beacon of light and happiness that spreads all around her.
