This New Zealand woman has been taunted, mocked for a rare syndrome. Then…
Tyla, 24, from New Zealand, is battling a rare disease and has recently been the victim of cruel jokes and bullying. She was diagnosed with Moebius Syndrome at birth. Due to this condition, she is unable to laugh or even move her pupils. People called her “miserable” because she never laughed.
But that didn’t stop her from trying and doing what she loved. The 24-year-old currently holds a Paralympic record.
The rare syndrome that Tyla suffers from affects only one in four million people. This syndrome prevents a person from laughing. He can’t even raise his eyebrows. However, the victim can move their upper lip. The facial muscles are paralyzed in this syndrome and the person is unable to change their facial expression.
There is no complete cure for this condition. It is however treated to some extent.
Tyla has been subjected to a barrage of taunts since childhood due to her inability to laugh. Today, however, she is a social media influencer. She has tens of thousands of Instagram followers. Tyla says not being able to laugh has been the most beneficial part of her condition. She is happy with her life and the example she sets for others.
Tyla’s parents tried the surgery several times to give her facial expressions movement, but each attempt was unsuccessful. However, she is now happy with her current situation. She is now only trying to motivate people who are like her.
People are also influenced by Tyla’s life and are now trying to learn from it.
