(soft piano music) (drawer thuds) (water rushing) (inspiring music) - So what is up, y'all?
Y'all already see by the thumbnail and the title, today is vlog day.
I have a lot of errands to run.
Yeah, so today's vlog day.
Y'all already know, y'all already see by the title and the thumbnail what this video is gonna be about.
I have a couple of errands to run.
I'm supposed to be doing my makeup today, so I have to go to the beauty supply house to find me some eyelashes.
(gentle poignant music) My dad taught me how to drive and that didn't take long.
So my dad takes me to an empty parking lot.
And he's like, it came natural.
Okay, 'cause you only have two legs, so it was like, "You're gonna hold the steering wheel "with one foot and the other foot, "you're gonna do the pedals."
The main thing people be shocked to know about me is my confidence, to be honest.
(bell chiming) (register beeping) Outsiders see me, I believe that they look at my physical appearance because that's just automatic.
Even when I go out in public, it's like people are gonna see my, me not having arms first because it's not... You're not gonna see too many people that don't have arms.
When I was younger, I didn't too much realize how different I was until it came to my attention that, okay, you don't have arms and everyone else does.
I wanted to be normal as everyone else.
(machine beeping) Most people that supported me was my family and mostly my parents.
They taught me how to love myself.
They taught me how to love others.
They taught me how to be independent.
- [Mom] Okay, whatever.
Where we playing "UNO" at?
- Mama, you're not playing 'cause you like to cheat.
- I don't like to cheat.
Y'all don't know how to play-- - [Kendall] Mama, but you do be cheating.
- [Kash] Kendall, that be you and you-- - [Kendall] No, that don't.
- No, Kendall cheat.
She make up the rules as she goes.
We don't follow old school-- - [Kendall] We playing doubles.
- We don't follow old school rules.
- [Kash] We're about to start this "UNO" game and we're waiting for my mom.
She started up and now I don't know what she's doing.
- [Mom] I'm coming right back.
- (laughs) She said, "I'm coming back."
- The same number down.
- You put an eight blue, eight red, eight yellow.
- Yeah, that's the same number, not the same color.
- [Mom] She always wanna teach people, teach people how to play her way.
- [Dad] You can't play that, that's a different color.
- [Kash] No, it's still green though.
- [Kendall] We mixed these colors up, Dad.
We not gonna do-- - [Dad] You're supposed to-- - [Mom] Whose turn is it?
Is it my turn?
- [Kash] Uno!
- [Kendall] You cheated.
- Nah, it's my turn.
The reason why it take Kendall so long 'cause she always trying to figure out a way to cheat.
(Kendall laughs) - First of all, I don't cheat so don't, I don't care because.
No, y'all-- - UNO out.
- You cheated.
- (claps) Boom, boom, boom.
Boom, boom, boom.
- She cheated.
(Kash laughing) - [Kendall] Can we play "Speed?"
- My mama's in the kitchen.
My brother, Kirsten, and Kendall just got whooped by me in "UNO."
- [Mom] So she was just active.
They hung outside.
She did a lot of stuff with dirt and she had a tricycle like everybody else.
So the tricycle was special made.
So she would get on that tricycle and go, go, go.
She had skates.
She would skate.
That was normal.
She just hung out.
She would hang outside, always active.
Even when she was a baby, she would hold stuff with her chin.
So she either would grab it with her chin or hold the pencil with her mouth or her chin.
So we just never really said, "Okay, pick it up like this."
It's just, she knew to do it automatically.
And brushing her teeth, We started brushing her teeth when she was like few months old, like how to hold, and I did show her how to hold it and then put the tooth paste on there and then I guess she would just hold it with her toes or something like that.
I don't even really remember.
But we just say, "Brush, like..." I really would just say, "Brush like me.
Do like me."
And she would just do like me.
- (indistinct) So this it's my brother's room.
He likes playing the game and he sits in this chair like every day.
And it has no more cushioning at this point.
What I do to you?
- She's clingy sometimes.
- Yes, you're clingy.
- I'm not clingy.
But I always want my siblings to know I love them.
So like I always be like, "Give me a hug."
you know, randomly.
And they don't like that.
(both laughing) We have another family member.
- That's not a part of family.
- Yes she is girl, don't do her like that.
- This is Dora.
- And that Dora is not part of-- - Stop, stop, her head is already opening.
This is Dora.
This is Kirsten, Kirsten, wave your hand.
This is her baby.
(laughing) (stuttering) Okay, let me tell you about her.
She don't like sentimental stuff.
Like, she not gonna give you a hug.
Okay, she don't like all that.
- But it doesn't mean I don't love you it's just, - She just like tough love.
- I dunno.
I'm not that type of person that's like, you know how some people is just perky and just, "Ahh, I love you so much!"
That's not me, that's not me.
("Something New by Wiz Khalifa" playing) (singing) - Okay, so this used to be my old closet which is now my sister's closet but I still have my trophies and stuff in here and stuff I went through in high school.
This is a letter the whole school, the athletic team wrote me 'cause I broke my shoulder in middle school.
So it's like a little, whole thing right here.
Athletics, I got my spirit award and then we went to Medieval Times my senior year.
And then these are a couple of associates.
I'm gonna be honest when I was younger, and it was just like, I wasn't too focused on people worrying about people knowing that I don't have any arms because at the time I was young.
So you know, like my mind wasn't set on what other people were saying or thinking.
So when I got to middle school and I started to do cheerleading, you know, I was more aware, okay, I don't have arms people look at you, they're gonna talk about you.
This, this and that.
With cheerleading I used to try to hide my shoulders.
And my senior year, I said, I'm not gonna do that no more.
I'm not gonna hide my shoulders.
I'm just gonna, you know, like be free and accept who I am and accept how I look physically.
And so, the older I got the more comfortable I got with myself.
(inspiring music) - What else was it?
When it came to me learning to, or not learning just coming naturally doing things with my feet it was just easy.
Like even when I was younger I used to hold the bottle with my feet instead of my hands.
I learned how to just do everything on my feet by experience.
The more I grew up, the more, you know I had to do the more I learned how to do.
(background chattering) I have homework and I need to relax my brain.
I'm so tired.
(indistinct chattering) You think so?
- [Dad] I'll grab these.
- But I wanted you to grab them, 'cause I like them.
- [Dad] Okay, well I'll get some.
- 'Cause I like them.
(buttons clicking) Don't diss my ability.
Just 'cause I look like I can't do anything, don't think I can't, you know?
And even with people in wheelchairs that have arms or just that's in wheelchairs.
I feel as if people look at them different too.
Like, you can't get around fast enough or something like that, and that is so wrong.
Like, it doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter how long this person is gonna take to do this, if they get the job done that's all that matters.
Confidence or having self-esteem about yourself, that doesn't come overnight.
I went through self-esteem and I went through having to build myself up and it took me a while.
(inspiring speech) I went through a big hump middle school and high school.
And then it was like another hump of me trying to, 'cause it was like, okay, I'm accepting myself, I'm trying to love myself, this, this, and that, and finding your worth.
I'll say it took me five to six years for me to get over this huge hump of me accepting myself and loving myself and caring about myself.
And right now, and right now, I am happy.
And now I'm in a place where I'm by myself and I know who I am.
I know what I want.
I know my worth.
So I'm happy.
And so now I'm just working on fulfilling all of my goals.
Handicap people are people that are built different physically.
Needs help or whatever.
It could be regular people that needs help.
So, I just believe that I want to represent all.
It's all about being fair and knowing that we're all human.
If we're a different color, if we're too toned if we're huge, if we're skinny, if we're in the middle, if we fine, if anything.
We're all human.
We're all human.
