With the wind in her hair, she looks out over the ocean which surrounds her island.
Her eyes are old, but they are still bright. They have seen so many changes over the years; some good, some bad. Her body is weaker than as it once was, but her smile is as strong as it has ever been. She doesn't fear the future, her spirit for life keeps her seeking out each new dawn.
Because she is a woman of Mauritius, and when she stands, she stands tall with pride.
