Dannielle Kim Asis is only nine years old, but her health condition makes her look much older than her age.

Asis is one of the few people in the Philippines suffering from progeria, a rare genetic disorder that makes a person look older.

Despite her condition, Asis maintains a positive attitude, performing well in school and doing the things that she loves. She is the class president in her school and is a consistent honor student.

She is also one of the beneficiaries of Project Michael Angelo Foundation, a private organization that helps children with health conditions, including progeria.
