A vlogger named Tisha UnArmed, who was born without arms and with a deformed right foot, shared a video to show how to drive a car using only feet and head.
The inspiring video has been watched more than 5 million times which shows Tisha driving a car with her feet.
“My experience of YouTube has been completely awesome, it’s not anything that I expected at all. You can’t sit at home, and you can’t be like, ‘I don’t have any arms, I’m going to sit at home and do nothing for the rest of my life.’”
Tisha can also eat with chopsticks, cook, draw, and paint.
Another young woman, who was born without arms, is an inspiration to millions.
Seattle University freshman Teresa Buchholz was born without arms. But, before you feel sorry for her, let me tell you, Teresa still writes, texts swims, plays soccer, dances, and drives.
“It’s not easy to be different — and obviously physically different — because everyone notices and the attention is always on you whether you want it or not. But I was raised to never back down from a challenge, and my mom always encouraged me to step up” she said.
Teresa, who doesn’t like to be called inspiring, said:
“I am not inspiring. I really don’t like that word. People think you are inspiring because you do things with your feet, and that is really not what inspiring is. I am just living my life, and that shouldn’t be inspiring to people.”
Teresa performs with the Seattle U dance team and Miki Saito, the dance coach at Seattle U is really impressed with her.
Saito said: “Honestly, I have been so impressed with the way she has been able to adjust to choreography, and she has a real go-getter attitude. She likes to try things, and on my end, I haven’t been one to limit her. Obviously, there are going to be some things that she just can’t do physically, but I haven’t run into anything that she hasn’t been willing to at least try.”
Teresa and her sister Anna, who was also born without arms, were adopted from Vietnam.
Their mother Sue Buchholz said:
“I am a retired physical therapist who worked in pediatrics, so to me, I think my kids did not seem that different. So I just treated them like kids. Kids learn to walk and they learn”
“They figured out ways to do things. Sometimes we would have to get creative, but a lot of times they could figure out things on their own. Certainly, I don’t believe they should let it hold them back.”
Teresa said: “I think if you have a physical impairment and you are close-minded, then you are just limiting your successes. Because if you are not willing to go out of your comfort zone and if you are not willing to do things that make you uncomfortable, how are you going to learn and how are you going to discover passions.”
