Davisito – The Story of Angel David Bonilla

Watch this inspiring story of a young man from the Dominican Republic, who had a tough start to life.

David is a man with an inspiring story. As a baby he was severely burned, and barely survived. He was put into a coma and had over 40 surgeries. Life hasn’t been easy for him. But despite these challenges David is living life to the fullest. Recently he got the chance to learn to kitesurf, and right away he knew he had found his calling. In the past four years he has grown enormously, even with ongoing recovery from the surgeries in the meantime. His mindset is really impressive and inspiring, and surely this hasn’t been the last we’ve seen from him!

Photographer and filmmaker Edwin Haighton shares his story.
