Her post read:
"My very first time posting here. I am Nhlanhla my story is that I was born a healthy baby but at age six I was diagnosed with Polio Juvenile Arthritis, which impacted the way I walk and my hands are deformed and doctors told my mom I wouldn’t make it to age 12. But did God prove them wrong! I’m staying because of the love and care people show me I love my country South Africa."
