Business Mogul and Bilateral Amputee Keisha Green is Breaking the Stigma on Disabilities
Keisha Green was born and raised in Syracuse, New York, the 8th highest-rated poverty-stricken city in the United States and became a bilateral amputee in 2013. She is an advocate and community activist for the Wheelchair Community. As Founder of Legless Divas and the Loving Legs Foundation, her purpose is to help those tap into their ability and not their disability. She strives to remind everyone that you don’t have to be held captive by your circumstance, whether you are living with a physical or spiritual disability.
In many cultures throughout history, disability has been associated with shame and powerlessness. However, the single mother of three is breaking barriers as an author, certified life coach, 6-figure salon suite builder, and prophetess. She has made a global impact, inspiring those to build and lead their own lives. As she says, “as long as we have the ability of our minds, we have the ability to do anything.” With nearly 2 million people in the United States living with limb loss, Keisha is debunking the negative connotations.
