- A 26-year-old filmmaker named Isaac Harvey is regarded as one of the best in London despite his disability

Isaac Harvey, a 26-year-old video maker and vlogger from Ilford in East London, is a renowned filmmaker despite the fact that he is living with a severe disability.
The young man was born with a birth defect called limb hypoplasia which affected the development of the limbs and left him with no hands and tiny legs.
Without allowing this to hold him back, Thesun.co.uk reported that Isaac started vlogging and filming himself playing games with his feet, which amazed many social media users.
His online presence grew and now the 26-year-old is recognised as one of the best filmmakers in London as he has won awards for his hard work and exploits.
Isaac was one of 15 finalists in the Vlogstar Challenge to find the best young filmmaker in London and Essex.
His video Hard Work (It Pays Off…) then won him the top prize at a big Bafta ceremony, getting £500 filming equipment plus mentoring from YouTube professionals.
Meanwhile Briefly.co.za reported that for most, the thought of losing both of their hands would be too scary to mention. Even more so, if you have a passion for the arts and drawing.
However, Zithulele Dlamini hasn't allowed this to deter him in his quest to make a living and fulfil his passion.
Although Dlamini has no hands, he still manages to create wonderful works of art, which generates a daily income.
In an inspirational video shared via YouTube, the talented artist reveals how his burning desire to create and be independent, acts as the driving force for his success. Dlamini touched on his love for art:
"It's something I was born with. The main thing that inspired me was the fact that I had no hands."
Dlamini explains that he earns a decent living merely by holding onto items. This simple act always seems to impress passers-by on the streets in Durban.
The determined artist also revealed his dream to one day create a range of quality pens, with his name on it.
