'I vlog so people with disabilities know they aren't alone'

Robyn Lambird is an 18-year-old Australian with cerebral palsy who goes by the YouTube name T-Rex because of the way she walks. She started vlogging after people commented on her Tumblr photos asking about her disability. "I did it to let people with disabilities know they aren't alone," she says.

She vlogs about her life with cerebral palsy, along with life updates and fashion videos. It's important, she says, that viewers get the full picture when it comes to disability, and wants to challenge people's views of disabled people. "You'd be surprised at how many people come up to me on the streets and, with a shocked look on their faces, tell me I look cool," she says. "It shouldn't be a surprise to people that a person with a disability might be interested in fashion."
