And, that's exactly what this 21-year-old named Nila Morton from Greenville, South Carolina needed in her life so the internet came to her rescue.
Why, you ask? Morton was born with a rare condition called Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy. For those who don't know, this condition causes severe muscle weakness that requires you to use a wheelchair to get around.
In an interview with Buzz Feed News Morton said:
I usually don’t post pictures of myself when I have a nice dress on or when I go out because I get nervous about comments since I’m not society’s view of disability.
I was kinda nervous about posting bc this is way outta my comfort zone & Ik some ppl will judge but I felt beautiful 🥰🖤✨ pic.twitter.com/sr0RyOHda4— Niyoncé💋 (@Niyonce143) February 2, 2020
What followed after that was totally unexpected. The internet definitely noticed her but their reaction was anything but negative.
