Polina is 16 years old, Russian, and lives with her family in the Far East city of Khabarovsk. She was born with a deformed leg and was not able to walk independently. Like other kids she had dreams, but hers was very special. She dreamed To Walk. In Summer 2016, Life in Motion International sponsored her trip to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children through its program I Want To Walk. Polina went through surgery, phantom pain, months of rehabilitation, but all of these was worth it since Polina started to walk on her own. Today she has an active life, going to school, preparing for college and she even runs!
In July 2017 her dream is to reach the top of the highest mountain in Russia and all of Europe, Mount Elburs. Life in Motion, WHOA travel, a group of 18 women from all over the world are coming together to 100% of the funds raised here go towards making this dream come true and helping her to reach her future dreams of becoming a XX come true.
