She Can Cook, Play Guitar, Drum, All Without Her Right Hand

Picking up new skills isn’t easy. Whether you want to learn how to cook or play the guitar, everything takes practice. Now imagine how much more challenging it would be to develop new skills with your right hand tied behind your back.

That is the reality for Abshow, the inspiring YouTuber who devotes her life to showing others how amputees manage daily life. You won’t believe the things she can do one-handed!

Born This Way

The 29-year-old YouTuber has had lots of practice getting by without the use of her right hand, as she was actually born without it. According to her Reddit, Abshow’s disability is incredibly rare. In the womb, her arm simply failed to fully develop. This is now referred to as the “Amelia birth defect.”

Fortunately, Abshow never felt as though her disability held her back growing up. “As a kid I was tenacious and tried things without fear,” she said.

Jack Of All Trades

Decades of practice has given Abshow a set of skills that even non-amputees would envy. She can bake, golf, and even play both guitar and drums.

Believe It Or Not

Not everyone can believe that she’s so high-functioning. “I once had a little kid absolutely insist that I couldn’t ride a bike,” she revealed.

Abshow has become so adept at working around her disability that it sometimes goes unnoticed. The YouTuber has shared that one friend had no idea she was missing a hand for months after meeting her.

Which Would Have Been The Dominant Hand? She Has A Theory

Without her right hand, Abshow never had the chance to figure out whether she’s a rightie or a leftie. Interestingly enough, she actually thinks she would have been right-handed. She kicks with her right foot, leading her to believe that if she had both arms, she would favor using her right.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

There is one thing that bothers Abshow about her missing limb — when people express unapplicable sympathy. She’s not sad about her condition and doesn’t want others to be on her behalf.

Seasonal Silliness

Though her videos are largely explanatory, Abshow doesn’t hesitate to have a little fun with the situation. She has even made tutorial videos for cool Halloween looks featuring her arm.

A Message Of Hope

Her videos are not purely instructional; they’re also inspiring. The video star hopes “to show the world that life can be filled with hope and fun no matter what your circumstance may be.”
