Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hi! My name is Anah Kryzanowski I am 17 and have a facial difference called Treacher Collins Syndrome. TCS affects my outward appearance in my face where it involves the underdevelopment of my cheekbones, jaw and ears! I am from Canada and am in grade 12! Next September (2022) I plan on going into practical nursing for college! I currently work part time as a substitute educational assistant!
What Inspires You Every day? : My inspiration in life would definitely have to be my family and friends! They love me and and support me always! I am so thankful for them and watching my friends and family achieve so many things brings me inspiration to try and do my best! I also find my inspiration in God. As a Christian I am inspired by God to do what’s right and to do my best in everything I do! I know God will help me through anything I go through! I also have found inspiration from online disability advocates and models. They inspire me that I can often do whatever I put my mind to and they encourage to love how I look which helps me build up my confidence!
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: Treat others how you would want to be treated! Also choose kind!
What is your ultimate goal in life? : I have a couple of goals! One would be to grow closer in my relationship with God! Other goals I have are traveling and visiting the world as well as having a family to love and take care of. I also really want to want to become more of a disability advocate! As well as work toward spreading awareness and breaking beauty standards!
What are your thoughts on people who seek attention on social media, and what message would you like to give them? : N/A
What are your thoughts about people’s behavior from experience, and how would you help them.? : I’m not really sure how to answer this one so N/A
What qualities, traits or lifestyle you live makes you different from others in the world? : Everyone’s lives are so different and each person has so many different experiences. My facial difference could be a quality that makes me different from other people in the world! Also being a Christian is different then other people as well. No one is very much like anyone else in the world so I suppose many things about who I am makes me different from other people. I do love being unique in my own way.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I love how I look so much and I am proud to be who I am! I want each and everyone one of you to know, you are so amazing and beautiful!
