This is a picture of my late sister at her high school prom. She passed away this year at the age of 19 and was a die-hard Disney princess fan.
When I think of all the princesses she looked up to I realised that she never lived to see the day that Disney created a princess, hell, a character like her.
My sister was a beautiful, confident, loving, and friendly person. Her qualities made her a princess in my life. I wanted to submit this picture because she is wearing a beautiful gown that we had to make for her because buying a prom dress off the rack was impossible. I wanted to submit this picture because if Disney made a princess who was in a wheelchair it would be more ‘normal’ to see a girl dancing the night away in her wheelchair. I submit this picture because maybe if Disney made a princess in a wheelchair she might not have been pitied, or ‘inspirational’ or sad or any of those things. She’d just be a normal girl living a normal life – on wheels.
Thanks for letting me share.
