Jessica Kellgren-Fozard is a UK-based social media and television star known for her beautiful vintage style. The 1950s-inspired dresses, shoes, and accessories are the things you’ll first notice from her pictures and overall profile. But although Jessica looks fabulous on YouTube and Instagram, her life hasn’t been easy since she was born.
Jessica is a disabled person who had a lot of problems with her hearing as a baby. Her eardrums burst a couple of times, she had several operations on her ears and eardrums, and then later she was okay from the age of five to 15. Unfortunately, when she turned 16, she began losing her hearing again.
However, her problems didn’t stop there. Later, she was diagnosed with HNPP, “which results in extreme palsy in my arms, as well as patches of skin, being numb, difficulty gripping things, weakness in limbs and severe fatigue”—and MCTD, an “autoimmune disease in which the body’s defense system attacks itself.”
Despite all the health problems, the social media personality tries to live her life to the fullest. Her goal is to make people understand that being a disabled person is okay. A couple of months ago, she and her wife Claudia welcomed their baby boy Rupert.
