Her ‘Why’: In early 2023 I was backpacking through Belize, Guatemala and El Salvador and met a large number of amputees. Unfortunately, not one single person I met had a prostheses. As someone who has worked fabricating prosthetic devices for the past few years I get to see everyday the difference a device can make to someone's life. I want to do my part to help make that a possibility for all individuals, regardless of where they are from or their healthcare/financial situation.
