Kashmiere who lives in Texas, United States was born with bilateral phocomelia, a rare condition that affects the development of the upper and/or lower limbs. In a recent video of hers, she was filmed driving a car perfectly with her two legs.
Her ability to live her normal life through the strong determination of making her disability an ability gained a large social media following. She has over 307K followers on Tiktok and over 250K subscribers on YouTube with many people highly inspired by how she was able to develop herself despite her condition.
“I really came a long way from me not having self-esteem and confidence to me being where I am now. I want people to see me in person and see me on YouTube and know that there’s no difference. I just want to be myself,” she said.

Kashmiere admitted that it has not always been easy to navigate a world that is not built to accommodate differently-abled people. But her parents, Phillip and Tomika Bomar, say even as a young child Kashmiere figured out things long before they did.
“Everything was just with her feet, like holding her bottle, her pacifier, she would flick in and out with her toe. We were just like, ‘Wow, okay’,” Tomika says.
There is always an ability in disabity and Kashmiere was able to inspire upcoming generations to chase their dreams no matter the condition. At Scholarship Region, we keep track of Scholarship opportunities around the world that can support and fund your education abroad.
