A 3’4” WOMAN who was born with no arms, knees and only seven toes, says she has achieved her greatest success in life – by finding the man of her dreams. 30 years ago, Jlissa Austin, arrived into the world with doctors predicting that she would never learn to walk or lead a normal life. To this day, Jlissa is unsure of what caused her abnormalities – but she has never let such things stop her in her tracks, learning to use her feet when conducting everyday tasks like brushing her teeth and texting on her phone. Aside from the obvious hardships Jlissa deals with day-to-day, she still manages to run her own successful weave business and has a great support system, fronted by her fiancé, Johnathan Shorter. Jlissa and Johnathan, who is a 5’6” able-bodied man, share an apartment together in Texas, USA, and are currently planning their dream wedding for the summer of 2019.
