Nicholson says that his disability, in his view, gave him a one-of-a-kind perspective that everyone should cherish as their superpower.

"I was born with thrombocytopenia absent radius syndrome, or TAR Syndrome, which means I'm missing the radius bone in both my arms. I think my disability gave me the confidence to explore my own unique way of looking at the world. My worldview is one where I'm always looking for beauty wherever I can find it, in places that people might sometimes miss. Don't underestimate the immense value of your one-of-a-kind perspective. There's only one you and that is your superpower."

You can check out all of Jordan Nicholson's work on his website or on his Instagram.
