Motivation – One-Armed Model Makes Her Weakness Into Her Success

One-Armed Model Makes Her Weakness Into Her Success

Shaholly Ayers has congenital amputation – she was born without her right arm below the elbow. This has disqualified her from her school’s basketball team, and was the reason a modeling agency rejected her in college. However, Shaholly didn’t give up and even if it took her ten years, she became a model. “There’s no way you’re going to be a model because you don’t have two arms. I tried to explain — I have prosthesis, I can wear that — really trying to sell it,”

“I was so new, I was so green. I didn’t have a portfolio or anything. I had to start at the very beginning. I worked with photographers and makeup artists to build my portfolio first, and then I started going to local boutiques and telling them I’d model for them. It worked.” Shaholly has recently done a shoot for a Nordstrom catalog, which is their third cooperation. She also appeared on the runway at New York Fashion Week. Sometimes, she doesn’t even wear the prosthetic!
