She identifies herself as a bionic model and singer. Exhibiting her beauty to the world has become Marsha Elle’s means of escape from the years of insecurity and self-doubt she had to endure while growing up. Her music offers hope for individuals who lose themselves and find themselves in their darkest moments, particularly because she understands what it means to be in that space due to her condition.

Marsha was born with a rare birth defect that affects the pelvis and causes the leg to be underdeveloped, causing it to be amputated shortly after birth. Growing up, she was stigmatized and bullied by her peers. However, she never allowed those insecurities to force her down when she learned to appreciate her body and looks. One of the gifts she is offering the world is the symbolic positive icon she has become on social media to thousands of followers.

 She recalled she had to wear baggy pants to cover her insecurity. This provided cover over her upper thigh area, which had been amputated. Despite that, she had kids making a mockery of her condition, which deepened her self-doubt because she wanted to walk like any normal kid but knew it wasn’t possible, according to Metro UK. Her life, however, took a different twist at the age of sixteen when she learned to appreciate her condition after attending a camp created for amputees. She rebuilt her confidence knowing she wasn’t alone, there were others who were deformed like herself. She later took a vow to believe in herself and motivate others to get out of the hole of hopelessness.

Marsha began a self-love campaign by showing the world her prosthetic leg. She took pictures of it at the beach, performed on stage, spoke publicly about herself, and declined the invitation to allow the opinions of others to define her. This has become her way of living her life in light and joy. She shares moments of this on her Instagram page to let the world embrace her inner beauty. It was this same energy that inspired her to become a musician and a model, according to Soulful couture.

She believes beauty transcends what is seen physically; in her world, it is what is buried within her heart and soul – It does not lie in the size, shape, or dress one wears. Once she stands by her definition of what beauty is, others can tap into this energy. Marsha has become a resource for the camp of amputees, the same space that helped her to find herself. She inspires groups of teens and young people who are battling their own form of insecurities to rise from them, and finds strength in giving back to society to help others face their own fears and doubts. She has become a true trailblazer and an inspirational leader.
