Rion is blind in one eye with glaucoma and has a congenital condition called, arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, which has permanently damaged her arms.
Rion told X Factor because of her curved wrist joints, she has to find new ways to do things and that every day is a challenge.
Nonetheless, she said, “Having a difference makes me more determined to conquer something!” She continued, “What you look like doesn’t define who you are. There is a fire burning inside me that you can’t take away … it’s just who I am!”
She was one of the Top 13 this week and is bound to make it to the next round with her last performance with, “Born This Way,” by Lady Gaga.
Not only was it spot on vocally, but her personal and passionate message was inspirational and something we can all learn from!
Our society today is way too judgmental, selfish and cruel. You go, Miss Rion Paige!! Show the world that our differences in the way we look don’t make us strange, but unique and wonderful! You are amazing!
