Happy birthday, you’re a pretty damn great one, says singer-songwriter Lena Dunham, who was born in 1993.
She was born with Down syndrome.
“The day we were born I felt like I had a perfect birthday wish,” Dunham told The New York Times.
“I was the happiest I’ve ever been in my life.
I was born and raised in a house of dreams, and that’s what I am today.”
That’s why her songs celebrate her birthdays.
She says her father taught her that she was a girl who would “make a difference” by singing.
The young Dunham has written songs about her life, her friends, and even her mom.
“When I was little, I felt really lonely,” she told The Huffington Post.
“So, I wanted to make a difference.”
The Huffington post says Dunham was born without a uterus, and so her parents were forced to use a donor egg.
Her mom was able to carry the pregnancy and give birth to a healthy girl, who later died of brain damage.
She is now a vocal advocate for women with disabilities.
Dunham is a vocal critic of Trump and his policies, including his travel ban on Muslims.
“It’s very sad that the president thinks he has the right to say that I’m a terrorist and a bigot,” she said on “The View” in February.
“And that I should be ashamed of my heritage.”
The New Yorker also found that she is a fan of the Disney movie Frozen, which she said was “beautiful and beautiful and beautiful.”
She’s also a big fan of “The Hunger Games.”
And in a statement on her Facebook page, she praised her “favorite movie” for its “torture, rape, and genocide.”
“There’s something about seeing an actual girl on the inside of a man’s body,” she wrote.
“Sometimes I wish I had grown up to be one.”
Happy birthday, Hannah!
You’re a really good girl!
You made a difference for the world!
Happy Birthday to me!
