Pretty much everyone struggles with body confidence, in a society where beauty standards are deeply ingrained and often harmful. As a disabled person, it can be difficult to see beauty within yourself as you might feel compelled to compare yourself to what others define as beautiful. That's why Keah Brown, a disabled Teen Vogue writer, created the now-viral hashtag #DisabledAndCute, encouraging disabled people of all genders and walks of life to share a selfie of their adorable, disabled bodies.

After this tweet, so many people started using the hashtag. People are demonstrating that having a disability is just a part of life—it doesn't stop you from being cute!
