"People put their own limitations on you. I never thought I was limited."

All of us are different, and Chassidy Young knew that from a young age. She did well in school. She competed in dance competitions. She was homecoming queen.

Chassidy was also born with tetra-amelia or, simply put, lacking all four limbs.

Where others might see obstacles, Chassidy sees opportunity and has used her "disability" as a springboard into a life of creative thinking, motivational speaking, and great fashion. She’s thriving in a world not built for her, and says she wants other women to know they can feel beautiful in any body. You can find her on social media @chasing_chassidy
