This Talented Woman Braiding Hair While Blind Will Pull On Your Heartstrings


December 8, 2022

This is just pure talent!

23-year-old Tusa runs a non-governmental organization (NGO) in Malawi that supports orphans, teen moms, and children on the streets. She takes care of about 50 kids, and she’s constantly bringing us along on her daily journeys and adventures with her family.


One of her best videos came from sharing one of the children she supports, whom she calls her daughter Mwai, braiding hair while blind. The mother said Mwai always wanted to learn but was often discouraged because of her disability. Tusa encouraged her and even found someone that could teach her. Now she’s braiding with ease!

Not only can she plait natural hair, but she’s also mastered knotless braids! The young girl hopes to open her own salon one day. 


With a little bit of time and effort, you can achieve anything you dream of just like Mwai!
