Rebekah Marine is a model, inspirational speaker and humanitarian. Despite being born without a right forearm, Rebekah never gave up and pursued her dreams and defied all odds in the fashion industry to become one of the most recognizable models in Fashion Industry.
Rebekah began her journey in 2011 when she decided to explore her options for a myoelectric prosthesis. When she was being fit for her new prosthesis, a friend suggested she model her new “accessory.” It was at that moment Rebekah realized she could turn her “disability” into something extraordinary.
It didn’t take long to become a popular face on TV, internet, newspapers and magazines. Rebekah has appeared in publications such as TIME, People Magazine, US Weekly, Cosmopolitan, Teen Vogue, Daily News and many more. In 2015 Rebekah appeared in Nordstrom’s 2015 Anniversary catalog and has walked at New York Fashion Week multiple times.
