  • Dani Burt’s (@dani.burt) leg was amputated above the knee after a motorcycle crash in 2004 that left her in a coma for 45 days. She went on to become a doctor of physical therapy and the first-ever women’s World Adaptive Surfing champion — but it wasn’t easy. “One of the biggest things I wish people realized about amputees is that you don’t just go in and get a leg,” she says. “You’re now wearing something that’s not really a part of you, but you have to make it a part of you.”
On social media, Dani saw the need for someone to be real about life as an amputee. “I needed to know I wasn’t alone, but that was near impossible to find,” she says. “I have the platform, privilege and responsibility to do that loud and clear. I know what it feels like to be knocked down hard and I hope to make the path I had to travel on a little less bumpy for others.” —Reported by Kassy Cho (@kassy)
This March, we’re collaborating with BuzzFeed News reporter and producer Kassy Cho of @world to find and highlight women around the globe who are making an impact in their local community and on Instagram. ❤️ Stay tuned here and on @world to see more. #WCW

  • When Romanie-Jade Tulloch (@cakefacerj) began using her face as her blank canvas, the creative possibilities skyrocketed. 🎨 🚀 “I remember thinking, why not try something artistic that will grab attention?” she says. “I knew from then on that using makeup to create illusions was exactly what I wanted to do.”
Drawing inspiration from Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet, the 20-year-old makeup artist from Nottingham, England, has always enjoyed painting. She brings that same creativity and attention to detail to her makeup looks — even incorporating real objects. “I use different props like paintbrushes, water glasses, honey jars, whatever comes to mind that suits the look,” she says. “I love the 3D element in my illusions.”
Romanie-Jade uses only makeup, not face paint, to create her looks, showing that makeup can transcend into a work of art. “I use makeup so people can see that there’s a lot more use out of that eyeshadow palette you don’t use a lot,” she says.
Today on our story and IGTV channel, breakfast is served courtesy of Romanie-Jade’s makeup skills.

  • Today is #StPatricksDay ☘️ and competitive Irish dancer Julia Sullivan (@julia.sullivann) is celebrating by performing around her hometown of Waterloo, Ontario. “Irish dance is an expression of our shared history,” Julia says. “When the Irish community gathers, music and dance are a vital part of the celebrations. It’s a distinctive signature of who we are.”
Currently, 19-year-old Julia is training for the 2019 World Irish Dancing Championships after winning fourth place last year in her age category. “Being an Irish dancer has connected me to my Irish family and heritage,” she adds.

  • Step up to the plate in your rainbow socks. “We try to teach our daughters that they can be anything they desire,” says Mel Karlberg (@melkarlbergphotography), the mom and photographer behind the lens. “The truth is that she doesn’t need that lesson.

  • Sushi 🌯 🍩 🍕 and 🍔?! Pushing the limits of traditional 🍣 🥢 fuels the creativity at sushi restaurant WAVE (@wavemountdora), located in central Florida. “Owning a restaurant is a lot of hard work, but it is also some of the most rewarding,” says owner and chef Jonathan McKinney, who opened the restaurant in 2017. Years spent working in his parents’ restaurant taught him the business and “Instagram has allowed us to reach out to the world,” he says.
