Perhaps not a "traditional" hero.

Gulabsha (rose), is a 12 year old living in the slums of New Delhi, India. She comes from a family of 13 and is a member of the Dalit (untouchable) caste of India. Most days I found her taking care of her baby nephew, but for this photo I managed to get her alone, able to be a child for a few minutes.
