Khloe is used to a lot of restrictions.
Being born with Spastic Cerebral Palsy made sure that movement on her right side is severely restricted. But the 24-year-old refuses to be defined by her disability and has gone on to embrace her passions, as she explains in an interview here:

Khloe, of Thousand Oaks, California, said: “I went to college, I travel, I sing, I act, I do makeup.
“Doing all of these things I just want to show people that it’s possible because growing up I was told it wasn’t.
“I started from the bottom, I started from nothing, and here I am through hard work and perseverance, surrounding myself with the right people, and having a positive attitude.
“If you put in the hard work and the dedication, nobody can stop you.”
And she has impressed both friends and family with her determination. She’s now on her way to becoming a professional makeup artist despite being only able to make use of her left hand.
But if there’s anyone who can do it, it’s Khloe. She was unable to stand up as a child but corrective surgery, botox procedures and physical exercises like swimming eventually allowed her to take more control of her body.
In high school, she was part of a disabled cheer team and learned to play the piano as well as performed in stage shows.
Her desire to become a makeup artist is her way of inspiring others to be their best selves.
She said: “I know some people who, when they’re not feeling the best, especially in my situation, just put on a full face of makeup. It makes you feel empowered.
“Sometimes how you feel on the inside and what you’re showing is not actually how your true self is. Just being creative, being able to do a full face of makeup and getting out there and just living life, it transforms you as a person.
“I can’t even explain what makeup has done for me because it’s just that profound. Regardless of if one arm works and the other doesn’t, I think I do a pretty good job.”
She has always loved performing which is why studying to be a makeup artist was an unexpected move.
“Growing up I was never into makeup,” she said.
“Then I took a course in college and I was able to play around with makeup.
“I really wanted to help other people feel the same way as I did with makeup because it really did empower me.”
As she has done with her previous pursuits, Khloe is applying herself fully to be the best makeup artist she can be and, hopefully, eventually make it big in Hollywood.
