Jasmin Britney also know as Katarina Koskiranta is a quadriplegic who attends Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. She is Finnish and was paralyzed from the neck down at the age of 9 by a car accident. Jasmin has spent almost $20,000 on makeup, clothing, and Christian Louboutin shoes so she resembles Britney Spears and Barbie.
She has assisted care who does her hair and makeup everyday as well as help her with everyday functions. She makes a point of trying to be an example to other paralyzed women to show that they can still look beautiful and glamorous. Their disability should not tear them away from their dreams.
Jasmin claims she does not want others in the same situation to give up hope. What inspires her to keep going and living her life to the fullest is being a Barbie lookalike. I think this is very inspirational and I fully support her in her decisions. Anyone is allowed to feel confident and beautiful.
