Meet Okelani:

Okelani Desiree Young is twelve years old. She has multiple disabilities including: cerebral palsy, a seizure disorder, and cortical visual impairment. She has a trach to help her breathe and needs a g-tube to eat and drink. Despite all of the challenges she faces everyday and major surgeries she has had, Okelani is a sweet and happy girl. She enjoys going places, reading, and playing with her little sister. She loves music and does adaptive ballet. Like most girls her age, she likes makeovers and spa days. Okelani is strong and determined and does not let her disabilities define her!
