“I don’t want to be a woman, I just want to be myself” - Ashley
In this video, nine-year-old Ashley and her family talk homework, television, favorite sports, goals, hopes for the future and growing up. A Leukemia patient, Ashley wants to be a doctor and a painter when she grows up. She doesn’t like to do homework, likes to eat pizza, is great at making necklaces out of beads and wants to marry her brother later on in life (“someday you’ll understand…”). If you hold in there long enough, maybe you might even hear some songs and witness some group hugs and kisses.
