12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
A Joyful Spirit

Audrianna is 10 years old, and my grandpa began to sponsor her, through Compassion International, 2 weeks before we left to Ecuador. We took her and her cousin to the Teleferico in Quito, Ecuador for a fun day. There we discovered that she lost her parents and brother in a car accident. She lost everything, yet her spirit is joyful.
