WATCH: The Power of Hope in One Extraordinary, Ordinary Life

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 03/14/16

The inspiring story of a young mother named Rosa

Meet Rosa, a 27-year-old Guatemalan woman who has had the strength and ability to overcome great obstacles in her life and pursue her dreams. She was raped, disowned by her family, became a single mother to a daughter born with hydrocephalus, and still she carried on, never forgetting what she wanted to do and become. Rosa now tells her story to others, and that story has been beautifully captured in a short film by Living on One, a production studio that creates films and educational videos “to raise awareness and inspire action around pressing global issues.” Rosa – These Storms is a reminder of the power of hope, of a mother’s unfailing love and of the importance of never giving up on your dreams.
