“I really want to inspire others to embrace who they are and build on their self confidence. I was born without fingers on my right hand and when I was two years old I had a toe to hand transfer.”
“Growing up and seeing other limb difference advocates motivated me to use my hand to an advantage and spread awareness. I’ve realised how much of an impact I can make to someone’s life just by sharing my personal experiences and how I overcome obstacles daily- I’ve learnt to love myself more, be proud of who I am and not let self doubt get in my way.”

“I have become so much more confident and open about my arm and life in general! I think that is because of my own personal growth but also due to the online community that has been created. My favourite responses are from Parents or Reach members though. To know that you are making a difference or helping someone else is such a remarkable feeling.”
“I just want people to feel loved and not alone. Especially children/young adults to not feel alone and to know that there are so many people just like you.”

“I am disabled, so many people are. I openly display mine because a lot of people still don’t have the confidence to openly be themselves, whether it’s when they leave the house or when posting photos on social media. You have to be the change you want to see”
” 100,000 people find me funny enough to choose to listen to me everyday!?
If only I could go back in time to old India and tell her to wise up and stop being afraid of what people think.”
In fact India now has 129.3K followers on TikTok!
