Adriana Parrilla  Puerto Rican 🇵🇷🌴 capturing stories of identity and diversity in the Caribbean. Based in Puerto Rico and France.

Víctor hugs his mother Wanda, who was exhausted after a long day. Wanda, a thyroid cancer survivor, has to take care not only of Víctor but also of her own mother, who is tied to a bed unable to walk.

Víctor is a 27-year-old young man who likes to dance, sing and post old photos of himself with friends and family on Facebook every day. He spends his days listening to his two favorite songs on Youtube and helping his mother Wanda. He talks constantly about how much he loves his family and about the places he wants to visit one day. His eyes reflect a joyful light, very characteristic of a young mind full of life. But, life for Víctor has been anything but easy. He was born with a rare genetic disorder called Sotos Syndrome, which results in gigantism, intellectual and motor disabilities, hearing loss, blindness, and severe scoliosis.
It is believed that 1 of 10,000 people in the world are affected by this disorder caused by mutations in the NSD1 gene and not inherited from any of parents. .

Víctor is considered to have the knowledge skills of a 10-year-old boy. But, when you talk with him, his wiseness can impress you. He never learned how to ties his shoelaces and yet he learned how to use Facebook like every other young millennial of his age. He has to use his Ipad very close to his face to be able to see. Because of his genetic disorder, he is almost blind.

Portrait of Coronada, 94, who is completely blind, at her home in Salinas, Puerto Rico. October 17, 2017.
After Hurricane Maria the elderly population of the island was particularly the most vulnerable. Without electricity, many were trapped in their houses or apartments and cannot have access to fresh food, water, and medicines.
