Mahogany Geter is an Aspiring and disabled fashion model, she was born with lymphedema, which is a long-term condition where excess fluid collects in tissues causing swelling on her left leg. Recently, she opened up about being abuse she receives through online trolls and who tells her to cut off her seven stone leg. Instead of all the bad trolls, she has not let this get her down, she is “proud” of how she looks. Currently, she has chosen to embrace her uniqueness by modeling.
Mahogany said “I have had my fair share of ignorant comments, one person told me my leg looked like a ham roll and one girl at school called me a deformed b***h. It has been so hard to rise above these mean people but I have no other choice. For the longest, I felt so low about myself but once I got older and with loads of support from the online lymphedema community and my mum who is my inspiration, she is so strong, I realized how beautiful I am. Not only looks but as a person. It means I can try my best to inspire other people to accept themselves and see how beautiful they are.” Currently, there is no cure and excess fluid builds in Mahogany’s leg which can only be eased with physiotherapy and lymphatic drainage massage. Mahogany’s leg adds 100lb (7 stone) to her 300lb (21 stone) total body weight.

On my channel, I would like to do Vlogs on a rare condition called lymphedema or elephantiasis. I would like to spread awareness and show how it is to live with this condition. Not only to focus on lymphedema, but I would also do Mukbangs ( because ya girl like to eat) and reaction videos.”
On Nov 17th, 2017, she took to Instagram and shared a few of her modeling pictures and captioned “I can’t believe I’m actually doing it. I prayed about this and it’s happening. This feels like a dream but when I pinch myself I am awake. Hello, my name is Mahogany and I want to tell my story. By doing this I hope to inspire others to accept themselves like I am learning how to. Because this is so much bigger than me. I was born with a condition called lymphedema that causes fluid on one side of the body due to the lymphatic system not working properly. This doesn’t only affect you physically but mentally. It’s hard living with this because you just want to feel normal and not be stared at by everyone in public. When I was younger I felt like god cursed me. I never felt pretty or cute. Every time I passed a mirror and saw my legs I drowned in sadness, I cried in my room privately. As I have gotten older I got better at accepting myself but could never post full-body pictures on social media because I was so afraid. The internet is a beast I wasn’t ready to face on my own. Until I had this idea that maybe being different was okay and god created me this way for a purpose. I wanted to promote that being different is beautiful by posting full-body pictures of myself.
However, I was going to have a photographer take the photos to guess you can say I’ll be the world’s first lymphedema model. I didn’t take this seriously at first. Thought the idea was silly.Until I don’t know what hit me that maybe God spoke to me that day. Finally, I decided to put my plan in action I contacted a local photographer named Carlos Jones and got the ball rolling. Carlos has helped me out so much I am so thankful. Not only do I see beauty but strength in my photos. A girl once shy keeping herself covered from the world to a woman confident ready to reveal herself. Honestly, I don’t know how far this will go or how many people will see this, but I hope to motivate as many people as I can and change the perception of beauty. That would make me so happy. This for anyone fighting disabilities or any insecurities.”
