Woman Takes Photos Dressed As Cinderella With A Glass Arm

Every child dreams of being a fairytale princess. But for Mandy Pursley, this dream always felt much further out of reach. Growing up as an amputee before the age of social media, she didn’t know any other children were going through the same thing, and she definitely didn’t see people who looked like her represented in the media. So as an adult, she decided to do something to inspire little girls everywhere.
