Meet the 20-year-old Loren from San Diego that lost her arm in a moped accident a year ago.
She was driving very fast on her moped and lost control of it and hit a sign that sliced her arm off. Luckily, a police officer came to her rescue that made sure she stays alive.
Being open on social media was a big part of her coping process.
It took her a while to get used to the jokes, but when she was the one telling them, things got a lot better.
It felt so good to embrace what has happened so she started posting more photos of herself on social media.
“People don’t see that very often, so a lot of people DM me to tell me it’s really helpful to them, people who are also missing limbs or are disabled.”
Eventually it was time to address the elephant in the room so she wrote a Tinder bio about the fact that she is missing a limb. Her story quickly went viral.
