Anneke van Heyningen, 18,  New Zealand

I spent my last two years of high school dancing at Interlochen Arts Academy, an arts boarding school in Michigan, USA.  I am taking a gap year to recover from my illness before continuing to pursue my dream to become a commercial dancer.

I started this blog to share my journey and lifestyle living with my illness and I hope to connect with and help others, I hope to promote awareness of my illness and I hope to inspire everyone to live a healthy lifestyle.

My dad is a photographer and I’ve always secretly loved photography too, hence all the photos!!
