Life With One Arm

My name is Faith, but you can also call me Fefe. I am here because I was born missing my right arm. I do not have a crazy story, I just popped out this way! I have been on Earth for 22 years and have enjoyed having one arm pretty much every step of the way. I am currently in university studying civil engineering and have my own online health and wellness business. Life with one arm has not always been easy nor fun. I have been through some really dark times of self-doubt, self-criticism, extremely low self-confidence, and so much more. However, the one-armed life has allowed me to enter so many different worlds and gain many beautiful perspectives. I honestly can not imagine my life with two arms. I think I would be a very different person.

Sometimes I wondered if my Parents knew I Only Had One Arm

With that being said, I have learned to adapt quite well to the various challenges of life. Growing up, I was taught that having one arm was a fact, not an excuse and to always just make it work. I owe a huge thank you to my parents for raising me with an independent mindset. They treated me just like any other kid, so much so that I sometimes wondered if they realized I had one arm. I am really excited to be sharing my story with the world. My whole life I have pretty much stayed in the shadows and tried not to bring attention to my missing arm. But those days are over as my heart has been telling me to help others embrace their differences. I am so stoked to connect with those who are in the same boat and with those who I can help! My biggest advice is to ALWAYS believe in yourself. Be the captain of your ship. You CAN do anything. I am truly an open book and have found lots of tricks to maneuver in this world with one arm. Motivating and helping others truly brings me joy so please feel free to reach out to me anytime.
