I’ve never had a modeling job before . . . until 2021. Prosthetics students at Alabama State University needed to practice their knowledge and skills before graduation. So I became a “patient model,” and they made arms for me.
Evaluations and castings have been a part of my life since I was one year old. But never six in one day! This was #6, and I was pretty tired.
We were all speckled with plaster and pleased with our day’s accomplishments. I found plaster on my pants, shoes, shirt, mask, and forehead. I even gained some white “highlights” in my hair.
I returned a month later for the fitting process. Each student had used the cast to make a socket for my upper arm. They were ready to add harnessing, elbow, forearm, and hand.
These are my new best friends. I know they will help many people across the country in the years to come.
That’s amazing Becky, it must of been such a unique and memorable experience to be a part of their future in prosthetics.
Yes, I counted it an honor, for sure!
Maybe you’ve never been a model, but you’ve been a role model your entire life! You’ve modeled courage, perseverance, character, friendship, love and determination, just to name a few.
I hope you are all doing well.
Happy New Year!
