10 Strong-Willed Women You Might Not Know Exist

Grace and beauty are the first two adjectives that would definitely enter your mind once you hear the word ‘woman’. Indeed, the world would be a sad place to live in without the compassionate hands and the unconditional love that women selflessly give. The purity, the love and the strength of a woman is incomparable as it is neither seen nor destroyed. Rather, it sits at the deepest part of our hearts and our souls.

But more than this strong-willed women exist to inspire and to motivate others to be the best versions of themselves. Pure and soft as they may seem, but they possess the strongest hearts. Quite not convinced? Below are some of the strongest women you might not know exist:

When she was a child, Mandy had an inborn genetic defect. Unfortunately, her legs kept on growing until they were twice as large as Mandy. Soon enough, she had to make the heart-breaking decision to amputate her legs because of a heart infection. Nonetheless, this did not stop her legs from growing. But no matter how the odds were against Mandy, she faces life with a smile on her face and a heart that’s full of love and compassion. Luckily, with the combined efforts of Cambridge doctors, it is said that they have found a pill that can possibly correct the genes that cause Mandy’s legs to grow bigger than usual.
