Future president doesn’t want to be defined by her disability

Anja is 9 years old.

She plays piano, takes classes in Chinese and does ballet.

She also has a physical disability.

Anja came by the StoryCorps booth recently to talk with her aunt, Andrea Korovesis, about their relationship and Anja’s life.

StoryCorps’ mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to share, record and preserve their stories. These excerpts, edited by WBEZ, present some of our favorites from the current visit, as well as from previous trips.
