"The Step" by PopSugar, presented by SOREL, is a podcast for – and about – unstoppable women. The women we look at and think, “How did she do that?” These are the powerful stories of the one step that pushed each in the direction of her dreams. In each episode of “The Step,” celebrity stylist Kate Young sits down with one inspiring woman to uncover the step that created a ripple effect and lead to their success. This step is that moment for each woman, whether it was a setback, a serendipitous encounter, a seemingly small win, or a piece of advice from someone unexpected, that changed their course.
In this episode of The Step by POPSUGAR, presented by SOREL, celebrity stylist Kate Young sits down with model and disability-rights advocate Mama Cax. Growing up in Haiti, Mama Cax survived lung and bone cancer at the age of only 14 but was forced to amputate her right leg. After years of hiding her prosthetic, Mama Cax made the decision to go public with her disability, appearing on the cover of Teen Vogue and walking the runway at New York Fashion Week. Today, she’s using Instagram to change the way we see beauty and celebrate disability.
