A dream of several years finally accomplished for Douchka Volaric, aka “low waist” on social networks, with the publication of her first book. A work that she had in mind for a long time. “Every Monday lunchtime, I took my niece to school. Until the day she asked me not to accompany her anymore because she was ashamed that people made fun of me. It broke me and I immediately had the idea of ​​writing a book […] I put myself in the place of a mother who has to accompany her child in the morning. And if she receives these words, it can be very complicated. »

“I laugh about my size because I’m happy the way I am, it’s never been a handicap”

The children, the world builders » as she calls them, are Douchka’s first target. “It’s important to explain the differences to them. Because when we tell children that there are short people, people in wheelchairs, until they see it with their own eyes, they don’t necessarily realize it. »

His book, Nothing is possible, is therefore aimed at the youngest but also… at their parents. “Welcoming a child into a couple’s life is upheaval. But even more so when it is different. I give advice that my mother gave me, but also advice for preserving your life as a couple, so as not to sideline the other children of your siblings. » On this precise point, she takes advantage of her work to “ apologize » to his sisters for having monopolized their mother. “I had a lot of care in hospitals. So mom left the rest of the family a bit to be able to take care of me fully. »

A multitude of differences

Douchka wanted all people with a particularity to be included in her book. “It was really a motivation not to write a book just about dwarfism. I didn’t want it to be focused on my body type. I address different religions, hair color, skin color…” Also, the 32-year-old young woman did not want to write a book about her life, but to make it an educational resource. “I know that it was bought by schools, including a CM2 class in Ardentes, and I’m really happy with it, because that’s the primary goal. »

After writing, it is the world of entertainment and more precisely the one-woman show, which attracts Douchka Volaric. And always with derision. “I laugh about my size because I’m happy the way I am, it’s never been a handicap. » Before that, she says she wants to take her time. “For the moment, I see the evolution of my book. We’ll see that in a few years.” she said with amusement.

“Nothing is NAINpossible”, published by Le Networker, €19.90.
