I was born without arms and learned how to do everything with my feet. Determined to be independent i focused all my efforts on getting my education, however even with a bachelors degree I still find it difficult to interview for open positions. It was my disability that employers were concerned about ands not my capabilities. So I decided to show the world how capable i can be. By starting my YouTube channel tisha Unarmed I began to share with the world that my disability does not define me.
