There's an old saying that goes: "Be kind for everyone is fighting a battle." And this is definitely true in the case of beauty vlogger Jordan Bone.
If you're a person whose interests include makeup or fashion, chances are you've stumbled upon a few beauty vloggers online, oftentimes to seek out their expert advice, techniques, or fashion "look book." And when Jordan decided to make videos of the same essence, her goal was the same as other vloggers: to share her craft and gain exposure.
However, as her YouTube page began to get more traffic, so did the comments section in which people proceeded to ask questions about the way she maneuvered through her videos.
Questions like: "What's wrong with your hands?!" and "Why is she holding her brush like that?!" began popping up thus leading Jordan into revealing a secret that she had worked to keep hidden from her viewers...
Jordan confronts the questions head-on, explaining in her recent video that she is a tetraplegic, meaning that she is unable to move her fingers or her hands. "I wanted the world to still see Jordan even though I became a tetraplegic," she says in the video. "I lost a lot, but I didn't want to lose my identity, too."
WOW! Talk about STRENGTH! Having to overcome a very prominent obstacle, Jordan acts as an inspiration to us all that we shouldn't allow any circumstances to stop us from achieving the things we desire most.
"If something is standing in your way, maybe it means trying a different way," she says. "I don't know what you're going through right now, but know that each day is worth living. Know that you are worth so much. Know that you're amazing!
And while she looks absolutely STUNNING in all of her videos, her true beauty lies in her gentleness and willingness to be vulnerable with others for the sake of inspiring those who, too, are dealing with a hardship in their lives.
