I’d like to tell you a little about a girl named Talina.
Talina is 12 years old, beautiful and bright. A student, sister, daughter. A musician, a vocalist.
The girl can sing.
I don’t say it just because she’s my cousin. She’s performed across the country and on TV and in the presence of people like Ryan Seacrest. She performs next week at Carnegie Hall in Manhattan.
I am so proud of her. And I am moved by what she proves.
Talina has autism. Don’t ever ignore a person’s abilities because he or she has a “disability.”
