You can’t imagine what a joyful woman is Ania. She has one of the most impressive stories that I ever heard. Ania was born in Poland, 24 years ago, without a right leg. Her mother abandoned her in the maternity hospital and begged a doctor to take care of her. “The doctor kept me illegally in the maternity hospital for many months. She knew that if I would be sent to an orphanage I could never have a normal life, in my situation.” When Ania was 19 months old, she was adopted by a Belgian family. "My parents are amazing. They adopted more children with disabilities and we all grew up happily in the countryside of Belgium, surrounded by animals from farms, enjoying nature. I always loved sports. As a kid, I had many adventures. I was running on the rocks and in the forests, I was always feeling free and independent. I broke my prosthetic several times. Back than it was impossible to have a proper one for sport, because I didn’t have a femur. Every night, before falling asleep, I was imagining myself running and running like an athlete. And my only dream was to have a proper prosthetic for sport. After a while, I started to think that if I will become an well known athlete, my biological mother will see me in the media and I will have the chance to find her in Poland. I really wanted to tell her that I never condemned her for what happened.” The second part of the story, soon. #AroundTheWorld #TheAtlasOfBeauty #Belgium #Poland #Inspiration #Sport

Emma is from Cape Town, South Africa, where I met her some time ago. “I was about 6 years old. I remember being in our after school care program because my parents both worked late. The dance teacher came in and asked who'd like to start dancing and I said < Me! > " And that’s how Emma fell in love with dancing. When she was 13 years old, her parents couldn’t afford to pay the dancing course anymore so she had to quit. In the following years she felt that something was missing in her life. She could not listen to music without thinking about dancing. So she decided to put all her efforts into her passion. She got admitted to the Cape Academy of Performing Arts and started to practice dance hours after hours, every day. She was also working, to pay for the courses. Although she was exhausted at the end of each day, she was feeling complete and happy. After a while Emma started to have some pain on her neck. But her passion to dance was much stronger than the pain, so she didn’t pay attention to it. A few weeks ago the pain became worse and she went to see a doctor. That was a sad moment. The diagnosis made her realise that she cannot become a professional dancer. There are sometimes impassable obstacles on the way to our dreams. But at the end of every path, there’s the beginning of another one. We just have to keep hope alive, look around and see it. "I know I will still dance eventually, although just for fun!” says Emma. #TheAtlasOfBeauty #AroundTheWorld #SouthAfrica #CapeTown #Dance

Although Europe is one of the most modern places on earth, there are still communities here that keep their traditional celebrations. During these festivities, many people that normally dress modern, wear their traditional outfits, sometimes inherited from their ancestors. What is interesting is that besides older generations, many young people attend this festivals and keep in touch with their traditions. I visited such communities in Romania, Greece and a few days ago in Portugal. She is Carolina, from Viana do Castelo, a town from Northern Portugal. I took this photo a few days ago during the festivities of Our Lady of Agony, a celebration that dates from the 18th century. #TheAtlasOfBeauty #AroundTheWorld #Portugal
