I was the coach for one of the other awesome speakers and was taking pictures from the audience and captured this image of Vilia deep in a moment of expression.
This was Vilia to everyone that knew her: passionate, determined, selfless, and kind.
I have no idea how it will be received by the family, but I painted this shining moment for them. In one way it is my condolence card. In another way it is a symbol of respect and hope; respect of the leader we lost and hope that her dreams for this community come true.
