This final project is a profile video on Malea Butler, a 17-year-old dancer with Occipital Neuroglia. I am concerned with this topic because there are many dancers who fight a chronic illness, but people may never know because of how strong they stay on the outside. This final project is about how, ever since being diagnosed with ON, Malea has not let anything stop her from pursuing her passion to dance. The potential audience for this multimedia piece is athletes, especially athletes who have had to overcome an injury or fight a chronic illness every day. Another group of audience members would be anyone who has a chronic illness that gets in the way of their everyday life or something they love to do. The impact I am hoping to make by producing this project is sharing Malea’s extraordinary story, therefore inspiring others to keep pushing when things get tough and to never give up on their passions and dreams.
