That Special Someone

- Monica and I on my Hen's Day.

It's not often we witness a person change someones life so prolifically but last night I did. I got to see my cousin Monica being honoured for all her hard work with teenagers doing it tough.

Those who know Monica, know that she herself has done it tough for many, many years suffering with the condition Lupus. She has been in and out of hospital most of her life and almost lost her own battle not once but a few times.

Last night she was the STAR of the show and boy did we see it (several times over & over as images - some not of her finest moments, were splashed all over the big screen). Highschool students flocked to her asking for photographs, hugs and offering thanks for all her hard work.

I've known Monica all my life, she is an unsung hero and one of the strongest women I know, who always goes over and above the call of duty to help those need. Monica never thought she would make a difference to anyones life and often questioned why she would be the right person for this job but after last nigt I don't think she'll ever need to question this again.

She is a star and I wish her all the success in the world, trust me no one deserves it more!

Do you know Monica, share your thoughts or tell me about another unsung hero you think deserves recognition. I know there are a few of them out there. I'd love to hear from you xoxo


  1. Im glad you wrote an article on Monica she is definately a hero, the amount of things she has been through at such a young age and she still remains so happy and bubbly. Meeting her you would never know what she has been through and I wish her all the luck in the world she deserves it :)

  2. I've met Monica a few times and I agree with the Belinda's comment you would never know half the things she's been through because of her positive attitude and willingness to help others. She is awesome.

  3. This is so inspirational.
    It's nice to know that there are still people who want to help others.
