Growing up as a living goddess

***EXCLUSIVE*** Preeti Shakya is dressed in jeans, smartphone in hand, as she enters her house in downtown Kathmandu. It’s hard to imagine this 21-year old was once a living goddess, taken as a toddler from her parents’ home. There are 12 Kumaris in the Kathmandu Valley. All are considered goddesses but Preeti was the Royal Kumari — the most important of all. She began her reign at three years old, living with the official Kumari caretakers for eight years, before returning to an anonymous suburban life. Preeti spent her entire childhood inside the Kumari Ghar, except for a few times a year when she left the house for festivals, but even then her feet were not allowed to touch the ground. Her real family visited just once a week, so her friends were the caretaker’s family. During the day, Preeti had to wear traditional clothes and makeup. When she wasn’t playing or studying, Preeti would sit on her throne and offer blessings to believers. Now a university student with her future ahead of her, she’s looking forward to the rest of her life.

Extremely cool three-year-old loves to skateboard in a tutu

***EXCLUSIVE*** BRIGHTON, UK: Footage captures the adorable moment a three-year-old girl nails dropping into a ramp on her skateboard. They say that if at first you don’t succeed then try, try and try again. This is the mantra Autumn California Bailey from Brighton, UK, is living by, even before starting primary school. In remarkable footage taken recently by her mum, Tara, Autumn is seen attempting over and over again to successfully land the drop-in move. Falling over doesn’t seem to be an issue for this little one who shows incredible determination to keep on going until she lands it. With „You Are Lucky To Be You” printed across her bright yellow sweatshirt, it appears this is most certainly true for young Autumn who showed an incredible natural ability for skateboarding even at a very young age, according to Tara. Her exceptional skill level is most certainly turning heads at the local skatepark. Yet despite this growing attention from those who witness her special talents and the 40,000 people who follow her on Instagram, Autumn is keeping her options for the future very much open. Although the three-year-old says she 'wants to skateboard forever', her other ambitions include being a „skateboarding doctor”, a magician, „someone who digs up dinosaurs” and an artist (the latter allowing her the freedom to paint on the walls of her house without her mum telling her off). Autumn’s mum and dad are supportive of whatever she decides to do.

Deathly Nutella eczema

***EXCLUSIVE*** AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND: This mum was accused of neglecting her daughter after an allergic reaction to NUTELLA left her covered in eczema. In November 2017, stay-at-home mum, Jasmine Nur (26) from Auckland, New Zealand, was watching her daughter, Zobiyah (4), enjoying a packet of Nutella & Go, whilst they were grocery shopping. Jasmine didn’t think much of it and continued browsing the supermarket. However, whilst she was wiping her face, she noticed her daughter’s face breaking out in hives which had specifically appeared in places that were in direct contact with the Nutella chocolate. Jasmine panicked and immediately rushed her to the emergency room where a nurse gave her a fast dose of antihistamine to reduce the swelling. Zobiyah was kept under observation for a further three hours. She was given her prescription then sent home. A week later, she started developing severe rashes around her eyes and hands, Jasmine didn’t know what to do and after a few days, Zobiyah started to get feverish and her rashes became infected. Thinking she had chicken pox, Jasmine gave her Pamol but her husband, felt certain that it was something else, so they took her to the hospital again. The nurse then diagnosed her daughter with eczema and prescribed a steroid cream called Hydrocortisone. Over the years, Jasmine noticed her eczema got worse and began to spread all over her body, in April 2020, she did some research on the usage of steroid creams and came across topical steroid withdrawal, also known as red burning skin and steroid dermatitis. Symptoms of this reaction include redness of skin, a burning sensation, and itchiness. On April 9, 2020, she completely stopped her from taking the medication and has since let her skin heal naturally. Throughout her journey Jasmine admits that strangers, who see Zobiyah, judge her and even wrongly accuse her of neglecting her daughter, despite her desperate attempts to heal her. Now Jasmine’s goal is to raise awareness of the dangers of steroid creams and the importance of letting your skin heal naturally.

Family with young patient diagnosed with scoliosis shakes off poverty in Anhui

Cai Qiyan displays a photo of her after her second scoliosis surgery in Jinzhai County, east China's Anhui Province. Cai Qiyan enjoys the view of flowing clouds from one of the mountain-top tea plantations. But the fun has also been a luxury for the 15-year-old, who was diagnosed with congenital scoliosis. From an early age, Qiyan had found it extremely difficult to keep her spine upright. In the depth of the Dabie Mountains, Qiyan had to spend two hours on her way to school and back home since it "took much longer time walking with a bent body." Despite her good academic performance, Qiyan became ever more self-conscious as she grew up. In 2012, the family had decided to seek medical treatment in Beijing. In the eight years to come, Qiyan had undergone eight surgeries. With the help of surgical implants, Qiyan had eventually straightened her back after painful recoveries. However, multiple surgeries had thrown Qiyan's family into dire poverty. In 2016, Qiyan's family was registered by the government as an impoverished household. Thanks to local poverty-relief policies, the family shook off poverty in 2019. Qiyan's parents now run a tea plantation which bring them an annual revenue of 30,000 yuan (about 4,240 U.S. dollars). Qiyan says she feels particularly thankful for the medical staff and those who cared about her health. Now as a sixth-grader at a local boarding school, the girl says her biggest dream is to become a doctor herself.

Hog headbutt

***EXCLUSIVE*** ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK, NAMIBIA: This warthog was sent flying with an almighty headbutt when he stumbled onto the territory of a rival. One action-packed shot showed a 250-pound male warthog as he was catapulted into the air by an angry adversary who used his blood-covered tusks to fling him off his feet. Another image captured the weakened hog running for his life with his foe hot on his heels. Photographer, Elana Erasmus (52) from Pretoria, South Africa, was in Etosha National Park, Namibia, when she came across this epic battle. Over the course of 10 minutes, the two animals battled it out just 10-metres away from Elana’s vehicle. Warthogs are named after the thick nodules of skin on either side of their faces. These act as protection during fights - especially around mating season. Their upper tusks are also useful in a fight and can grow up to 11-inches long. Adult male warthogs often live alone unlike females who live in groups called sounders. Due to their solitary nature, male warthogs often engage in territorial battles.
