Born without arms, knees and only seven toes, Jlissa Austin says one of her greatest achievement is finding a man who loves her despite her imperfections.
Jlissa arrived into the world with doctors predicting that she would never learn to walk or lead a normal life but she has never let such things stop her in her tracks. Instead, she learnt to use her feet when carrying out everyday tasks like brushing her teeth and texting on her phone.
She also runs her own successful weave business and has a great support system- her fiancé, Johnathan Shorter, whom she has known for 13 years. The couple met through mutual friends years ago and they became very close friends.
Jlissa and Jonathan share an apartment together in Texas, USA, and are currently planning their dream wedding for the summer of 2019.
