The most adorable post I stumbled upon this week, is about two adorable little girls that are beating the odds, and enjoying a fun, and active life while battling Spina Bifida. Mayli and Brooklyn, have gone viral after a video of the two young girls dancing to “Watch Me,” splashed onto the internet. The video is a treat to watch, as Mayli and Brooklyn whip their hair, and spin in their wheelchairs doing the “nae nae” and “stanky leg.” Anyone that hasn’t been living under a rock this summer, knows that the newest dance craze to sweep the nation is accompanied by the song “Watch Me,” and you can spend hours online watching the millions of uploads by various people, putting their own spin on the dance.
Mayli and Brookyln have quickly become an internet sensation, proving that they aren’t going to let Spina Bifida, or a wheelchair keep them from having fun. Apparently Mayli’s mother started a dance class, for other children in wheelchairs that love to dance just as much as her daughter, she currently has GoFundMe campaign for the class, where she explains the name “Ayita,” is a Cherokee name meaning “first to dance.”
Mayli loves to dance, and her mother insists that her daughter does not see her wheelchair as an excuse to miss out on her passion. Now that Brooklyn and Mayli have teamed up they have regular slumber parties, and kitchen dance battles. Their “Whip/Nae Nae” video is popping up everywhere and they are stealing the hearts of everyone that watches. Seeing Mayli and Brooklyn dancing so freely, is just the thing to pull anyone out of a slump. When it comes to being inspired, there is nothing like watching children overcome the odds, and show you that there are no excuses for not being happy.
As the views tick in these two amazing little girls are spreading happiness around the world, and all they are doing is being their fantastic selves. Check out the video for yourself, and grab a smile on the house.
