Think of it as the Ultimate Mobility Accessory

New Yorker Jillian Mercado edits the “Who Am I?” column for celebrity photographer Patrick McMullen’s PMc Magazine.  When she was a student at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, Mercado completed an internship for Allure Magazine.

Online, you can find her offering lipstick recommendations on the Poshly website or commenting on what’s coming down the runway on Manufactured 1987, her fashion blog. I particularly enjoyed this article of hers on the Beautylish site.

Mercado is well on her way to making a name for herself in the fashion world.  Ms. Mercado getting a lot of attention thanks to a recent article in the DailyBeast – unfortunately, the headline refers to this stylish young woman as “wheelchair-bound” and the article notes in the first paragraph she’s been bound to her chair since the age of 12.  

Yes, Jillian’s chair is an important tool in her life. But I am pretty sure her talent and determination will take her farther.
