And the answer is not “make curtain-ade”…
South Korea and Japan? Not exactly known for getting along. But this inspirational video gave us the feels in a big way.
Different cultures may have different beauty standards, but one beauty requirement that was thought to be universal in the world of modelling is having a set of long, shapely legs.
But now even that idea is being challenged. Thai-born model Kanya Sesser was born without legs, but she hasn’t let that hold her back. She currently works as a lingerie model, and she’s transforming people’s notions about what it means to be “beautiful” all over the world.
There’s no doubt that swords are freaking awesome, and we bet everyone has dreamed about giving it all up and moving into the country to spend the rest of their days crafting badass swords, but we doubt many people have actually followed through. Which makes sense, because actually making swords looks freaking exhausting. And probably pretty difficult too.
But that didn’t stop Jia Huaijin from quitting his steady office job and doing just that!
Have you ever given up on something you wish you’d persisted with? We’ve all quit something at one point or another in our lives and there are many reasons for giving up. It sounds great to be able to play an instrument effortlessly, master a sport or become fluent in multiple languages, but once the reality of just how much work goes into a skill sinks in, it can often feel impossible.
Meet Ibrahim Hamada of Egypt, a table tennis enthusiast who says, “Nothing is impossible as long as you work hard.” That may sound like the kind of thing that can only be said by the exceptionally naive, but that is not the case here. He was involved in a train accident when he was 10 years old, and he lost most of his arms as a result. At 13, he was determined to find a way to play again.
