- Nobathembu is living with disability
- In two Twitter videos, she urged people to see her first before her disability
- Tweeps commended her for her positive message
A brave woman living with disability has urged South Africans to see her first before seeing her disability.
Pretty Nobathembu, from Cape Town, shared her message via two videos on Twitter, Briefly.co.za gathered.
In the first video, she said everyone has a disability because there's always something that they're unable to do. In her case, it is to walk.
Apart from being unable to walk, Nobathembu said she can do many other things, including cleaning, driving, and swimming. She explained:
Sometimes, the things that I find easy to do, someone else who is able-bodied might not find it easy to do. Being disabled doesn't have to be something that is visible.
Just because my disability is visible doesn't make me any different from you, and just because your disability isn't visible doesn't mean you don't have one. So we should stop discriminating against one another.
In the second video, she said that despite being confined to a wheelchair, she doesn't want to be treated differently.
As Briefly.co.za previously reported, Nobathembu proudly flaunts her beauty on Twitter in a bid to show that women with disability are not different.
Tweeps commended Nobathembu for her positive messages. See some of their reactions below.
