This Young Girl Shows How to Peel and Eat Crawfish with One Hand

Niyah Jean hasn’t let having the use of only one hand slow her down – especially when it comes to eating crawfish!

Her left arm and hand have been paralyzed since birth due to a birth injury from a forceps delivery known as obstetric brachial plexus palsy. This condition affects approximately 1.5 out of every 1000 births in the United States.

According to her mother, Dee Hollins, who runs the Nola Chic page on Facebook, “This is what happens when you have a NOLA baby who’s seafood crazy and you get tired of peeling crawfish for them and they eat faster than you.”

Some of Niyah’s hobbies include playing basketball and riding her bike.
