    The Invisible Girl: Helaina Hovitz

    As the 10th anniversary of the attacks of September 11th, 2001 approaches, we meet Helaina Hovitz. She was 12 when the attacks happened and she suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder through her teenage years as a result of what she saw that day. Helaina Hovitz is 22 now and her life is still shaped by the long shadow of 9/11.
