Oriana (37), born in Alkmaar, the Netherlands


Oriana (37) is working as recreational therapist in a care home for people with dementia. Her job, quite ironically, was a result of completing a stint of community service, she’d been ordered to do after being accused of “taking advantage of vulnerable people”. A charge done by the children of a few elderly. And a charge Oriana still persistently defend.
The staff of the home though, were impressed with the professional compassion Oriana exhibited during her community service and they wanted her to stay.
