Isabella de Beer

About you


My name is Isabella de Beer and I am 11 years old. Since my 4th birthday I have been a volunteer at the XP camp. I love working with the kids and playing with them. At camp these kids can play and no one stares at them, we are all the same. When I'm older I am going to run the XP society.


Your biggest motivation


Seeing these kids every year and knowing they have a chance in life if we try to help.

Your greatest achievement


My greatest achievement is my schoolwork I want to become a doctor and I get over 80% for every subject. I also love modeling and doing community work.


What's next to strive for?


I strive to learn hard and become a doctor to help these kids.


Advice to up-and-coming advocates


Give your free time, and do charity work it feels good to give back to the community.


The tide will turn for the rare disease community when...


We get more people who care and give their time helping out and not expecting anything back.
