They Told This One-Armed Girl She'd Never Be A Model... Then She Proved Them Wrong.
Rebekah Marine was told she would never make it as a model in the fashion industry. Now, the 28-year-old is going to walk in New York Fashion Week. Marine will make her appearance with her bionic arm. The model was born without her right forearm. Since she was a little girl, she dreamed of becoming a model but was constantly turned down.
"Hearing the words 'You'll never have a future in the business,' really hit me hard,” says Marine.
Her bionic arm is quite impressive: it’s an i-limb™ quantum prosthetic which allows people to change grips with gestures.
The bionic model’s experience has not always been easy but she hopes to inspire others.
“Every day is an opportunity to inspire someone. It's an amazing quality to have, so don't be afraid to be yourself and show the world you can do anything you put your mind to. "
