modelledeRebekah Marine is a model with a prosthetic hand, and she will walk in New York Fashion Week on September 13. The 28-year-old was born without a right forearm. She was told at a young age that she wouldn’t have a future in modeling. But now, with her i-limb quantum – one of the more advanced prosthetic hands made with gesture control technology – she was embraced by some in the industry. In addition, she realized she could turn her disability into something inspirational and become a spokesperson. For this reason, Marine works with the Lucky Fin Project, an organization that raises awareness and support for those with upper limb differences, in order to teach children that their disabilities do not have to be limit their future. usemodelarticleNota retomada de http://www.west-info.eu/a-bionic-model-will-walk-in-new-york-fashion-week/
