Let’s be perfectly frank: being born without arms would not be ideal. However, if I was struck with such a stroke of bad luck, I would look up to Tisha, a 26-year old YouTube vlogger who posts videos where she informs viewers how she accomplishes everyday tasks using only her legs, head, and torso.
Tisha, who goes by the moniker Tisha UnArmed on YouTube, does not know why she was born with only a pair of stumps hanging off of her shoulders (one of her legs is also slightly shorter than the other). However, Tisha’s disability has not stopped her; she lives what appears to be a perfectly normal life, eating and dressing and driving in ways that boggle my arm-centric brain.
It’s fascinating to see how versatile and flexible Tisha is, not just in her feet but throughout her body. In her most recent video, she becomes heavily armed as she takes a trip to a firing range. Pay close attention to the way she shrugs a pair of earmuffs onto her ears, using only her face and shoulders.
What makes Tisha’s videos so great is her sublime collection of endless energy, enthusiasm and humor with regard to her lack of arms. She frequently makes jokes about her condition and seems to be indubitably proud of her armless physique. Anyone two-limbed person could make a mildly interesting channel, but Tisha brings hers to the next level because she has no fear of discussing the way she lives her life.
