Is a question I see on my YouTube channel so often these days, mainly from random viewers who have just stumbled across my channel. Therefore, I thought I’d clear a few things up. Although, I know all of you who read my blog understand, I feel I could put this on my channel just to get rid of ignorant comments.
The thing I don’t understand when I see comments like, ‘Why are you holding a brush like that?’, ‘I couldn’t finish the video because of her attempt to grab her hair’ & ‘Whats wrong with her hands!?’, is why that person doesn’t just do some research first because it wouldn’t be hard to find out. If they simply watch my my main channel video it explains all about my accident.
So to those who do not know what is wrong with my hands, the answer is:
Nothing is wrong with them, they’re paralysed. The problem doesn’t lie within my hands or legs but my spinal cord which was damaged in a car accident 10 years ago when I was just 15 years old. I am paralysed from my chest down which makes me a quadriplegic so I have to use a wheelchair. I cannot open or close my hands so to be able to do my makeup, for me, is a miracle. I would practise and practise until every lash was covered in mascara, even if half of it was down my face, but I got there. There are so many things I cannot do for myself so being able to do my makeup and even teach others through my channel is such an achievement for me.
I hope that has answered your question and actually inspires you to try to do something you think is unachievable.
