There are many amazing things about being a photojournalist. Holding the powerful to account, capturing historical events but one of my favorites is having access to meet extraordinary people.
Such was the case of meeting Vicky Angelo. A little more than a year ago at the age of 19, Angelo was involved in a car accident that left her paralyzed.
She has not given up hope. “This is a fight. I feel stronger every day,” Angelo said to our reporter Sandra Fox.
I felt humble photographing somebody who has been through so much. It was a privilige to have been able to spend time witnessing her path to recovery.
The Woodbridge Running Company in Brookfield will hold the We Care 5K road race at 9 a.m. on Sunday, April 29th with the net proceeds going to assist the Angelo family with its medical costs.
