Amie Richards is from Massachusetts, and Reese Gieger lives in Atlanta.
They have traded a few letters, but recently, they met virtually for the first time.
Connected through the Disability EmpowHER Network’s “Letter from a Role Model” program, they both have spina bifida, a birth defect that causes a person's spine to develop abnormally.
Amie, who is 32, told 9-year-old Reese that she could ask her anything.
"It can even be a silly question,” Amie said.
