Interview With Artist

Lifelong illnesses and conditions can get in people’s way. However, time and time again, people with disabilities prove that it doesn’t have to stop them from achieving wonderful things and living life to the fullest.

One such case is 28-year-old Hannah Tire, who was born with a rare condition, osteogenesis imperfecta. Due to her fragile bones, she needs help on a day-to-day basis. However, Hannah found her independence with makeup, which later turned into her passion. Now, Hannah is a well-known beauty influencer who actively posts her makeup looks on her Instagram.

Meet Hannah, a 28-year-old beauty influencer who faces the challenges of a rare bone condition

Hannah was born with what she calls ‘brittle bones’ that break very easily

Bored Panda reached out to Hannah to learn more. First of all, she expanded on the bone condition.
“My disability is called osteogenesis imperfecta. It’s caused by defective genes. These genes affect how the body makes collagen, a protein that helps strengthen bones. Because of this, I’ve had over 100 fractures in my life. I’ve broken every bone in my body,” shared Hannah.

Because of Hannah’s condition, she needs help with everyday tasks like dressing up or bathing, making her dependent on others

Though Hannah has made peace with needing help from others, she shared that she found it difficult in her teenage years.
“My childhood was very normal despite my disability. I’m very thankful my family always encouraged me and supported everything I wanted to do, from cheerleading to social media. It was sometimes difficult watching my peers do simple tasks and not need as much assistance or take as much time, but from this, I’ve learned there’s nothing wrong with needing help; everyone does at some point,” wrote Hannah.

Luckily, Hannah’s family was always very supportive and remained by her side

Hannah’s interest in makeup started back when she was 12, as it was something she could do on her own

Hannah also shared how makeup came into her life: “I got into it at 12. I would play around in my bedroom with makeup on weekends, and I loved how it was something I could do on my own without any help. I finally got up the courage in 2015 to upload my first YouTube tutorial.”

Later on, Hannah got the courage to create a social media account, and her beauty content quickly went viral

We were curious how Hannah felt when her content reached so many people: “When I first started uploading content, I never in a million years thought I would go viral or achieve the goals I have. I hope to inspire other young girls and women with my platforms and be the representation I didn’t have growing up.”

To this day, Hannah, despite her disability, inspires others with her makeup talents and resilience, proving that beauty comes in all shapes and forms

Lastly, Hannah shared what message she would like to spread to other people with the same disability: “If you can dream it, you can achieve it! There will be days you’ll feel like giving up: take a break, but don’t quit, and never be afraid of failure, because from it, you grow and learn.”

Fascinated by music, movies and sitcoms, I'm passionate about social media and can't live without the internet, especially for all the cute dog and cat pictures out there. I wish the day had about 40 hours to be able to do everything I want.

Hello Pandas! My name is Ieva, though it's often mistaken for the word 'Leva,' and in Lithuanian, it means 'loser' (insert the pain emoji). While I don't take offense if you accidentally call me a loser, I thought I'd share something interesting with you, which I also do professionally at work. Anywayyy, my favorite part here is introducing you to creative people who deserve just as much recognition as famous celebrities. Besides that, I also enjoy memes and funny, lighthearted posts, and occasionally, I find myself drawn to a bit of internet drama.

Genetics can really be s**t, poor woman! I am happy for her that she can do what she loves nonetheless

"Hannah also lives a full life; she travels, goes to concerts, and meets her friends" This line annoyed me more than it should. I'm also a full time wheelchair user and disabled person and why wouldn't she do these things? Just because she's disabled?! Disabled people are prisoners that are locked away and only allowed out to visit the doctors, we are normal people who have lives just like disabled people. Free to live our lives to full as we want to. They wouldn't have added this line if she was able bodied, but if they've added this because people think disabled people don't have lives, then I weep even more for humanity!

I think it was meant to stress that people with disabilities can live full lives, like anyone else.

"proving that beauty has no bounds"? No, she has a cute face and skills which show her makeup off well. That's literally what all other beauty influencers have.
