HW Pickup Student wins 2017 Alberta great kids award Taija Dryden along with 15 other incredible children were chosen for the 2017 Alberta great kids award. Here's what they had to say about Taija:
“Taija not only triumphs in the face of adversity, she inspires people every day. Taija was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis at age 9, a disease with no cure that causes a rash, fatigue and extreme pain and weakness. Taija had a tough choice to make at a young age: she could either let her body take power over her life or she could take power over it. She decided to use her situation for good and to serve as a mentor for her friends, family and community. She was determined to continue to go to school as often as she could and volunteering within her school and community became a regular occurrence. Even when she didn’t feel well, she would push to go to school, to volunteer and to connect with those that needed her. She has spent many days and months in and out of hospitals but instead of complaining, she uses her time there as an avenue to help other kids who are sick. For one five year old in particular, Taija has become like a big sister, helping keep the young girl calm and distracted when she is at the hospital for treatment. Taija is an example of strength, determination and hope that keeps other people going on their bad days. She reminds people that the disease does not define the individual. For Taija, it is her spirit, smile and drive to help others that define her.
