Episode Twenty Three - Girl on fire

Nipuni Wijewickrema is a person who invites strong (positive) adjectives. She is high energy, constantly on the go, and street smart, with an almost unwavering optimism. The young social entrepreneur rose to local celebrity-dom through GG's Flowers, the florist she co-founded with her stepmother when she was just 20 years old. It's premise: to provide meaningful employment opportunities for people with special needs, starting with her sister Gayana, who has Down syndrome.
