Lisa Ferrin is a proud parent of a beautiful 15-year boy named Elijah who has Down syndrome. She is passionate about advocating for her son and loves creating and co-created inspired projects that spread Down Syndrome awareness in the community. Lisa is also an inspired photographer that loves to focus on humanity and the simple beauty found in nature through the images she captures. Her inspiration evolved from the love she has for her son Elijah who has Down syndrome. She has a beautiful series of photos that focus on the Power of Human Connection through hugging and the simple beauty of connection to strangers and the positive impact it has on the community and the world! Her son Elijah is an intuitive hugger who is led to certain people that he blesses with unconditional love and his healing touch.
Lisa is also an inspired poet and loves to write freestyle poems about nature, love, and matters of the heart. She occasionally shows up at open mics at coffee shops to recite her poetry. She created the group, “Pink Sunset Poems” on Facebook to share her poems with the world.
