Joanne O'Riordan, is one of seven people in the world born with Total Amelia, meaning she was born without all four limbs. However, she or her family have never let this condition hold her back and at just 16, Joanne travelled to New York to address the United Nations. This inspired her brother Steven O'Riordan to make a documentary 'No Limbs No Limits' about Joanne's life, family relationships, and the emotional, physical and mental impact the disability has had on both her and those close to her.
