Keah Brown! The woman behind #Disabled and Cute!

  She is a disability rights activist who created the hashtag #Disabled &Cute. Which went viral in 2017. Keah went to university at Freedonia in New York and is currently a journalist and author of “The Pretty One: On life, Pop Culture, disability and other reasons to fall in love with me. ” I first found Keah Brown through Twitter and Maysoon Zayid @maysoonzayid . I had seen via Ted Talk and resonated with her as we both have cerebral palsy. Keah Brown @Keah_Maria does too. So the same yet different. Despite being disabled with the condition she does not let it define her. She uses a wheelchair as if it's a pair of comfy shoes that she can do almost anything in. In her book, Keah Brown talks about coming to terms with the condition and loving herself. Even though she may never have love in a relationship. She has the double whammy of being coloured. People would pity her but not her twin sister who does not have the condition. Jealousy and anger start within her life before
