Mirja's left leg was so badly deformed at birth that they had to be amputated some centimeters below her hip. But she was quite happy that she still has a short stump left for her prosthetic leg. From time to time, she uses her prosthetic leg, but finds it difficult to walk on it for long periods. Mostly, she finds that she can get around better with crutches. Her favourite food is Pizza. Mirja likes to go to the cinema and she also enjoys reading and going to parties, where she can meet and talk to her friends. She is generally a fun loving, happy go lucky girl.
