Love your uniquely perfect differences
I am Laura, I am 28 years old, and I live in the UK. I have Symbrachydactyly, which affects my right hand. I am in a long-term relationship and we have two boys. I am a qualified nurse, I drive a manual car, I sew, and I do a better job of changing nappies than my other half.
Some tasks just need a little editing; like tying my shoe laces, but I always find a way and there is nothing that I cannot do. I love my hand, and I would not change it. As a child, I struggled with my confidence and I used to isolate myself, so I did not have to answer the awkward questions and face the funny looks from other children and adults.
However, growing up, I have learnt to love myself and I could not love my difference anymore than I do now. Recently, I have been signed to Zebedee Management as a model and an actress. From this, I hope to inspire others to embrace their uniquely perfect differences and to promote diversity in the media.
