Destiny Moor is a lovely flower from San Jose City, Nueva Ecija within the Philippines. Like many children born with unique features, she was sheltered as a child. But Destiny's father planted the seeds of independence in her toddler-developing mind. Destiny came into this world as an amputee - she developed in the womb with a half of a right leg. She has a right knee without the lower part of the leg. Also, some of her fingers formed in a unique way.

A deaf make up artist
Kellie, 24, a make-up artist for MAC, who
lives in Leicester, is profoundly deaf and can hear nothing without hearing
Her younger sister Jodie, 22, is
also deaf, though the condition does not run in her family.
'I had a hard time growing up because of my disability,' says Kellie.
'Not only could I not hear, but my
speech is affected and it's often difficult for people to understand me.'
This made school frustrating. I
learned more slowly than other children because of my hearing problems, and
needed extra help all the time, which I hated.
