Sup Travellers?! Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder but when the beholder is society in general most women have a hard time keeping up with the standards. This does not only apply to women because men face the same kinds of issues sometimes but that's not what this post is about. This post is about displaying the other side of beauty which is rarely shown on the TV or displayed on billboards: the unconventional beauty.

1. Brunette Moffy, the cross-eyed model.

Brunette Moffy is a cross-eyed model who works with Storm Models, the same agency that brought the likes of Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford and Cara Delevingne into the spotlight. She turned her condition into a signature feature and says she loves her eyes the way they are.

2. Jacky O'Shaughnessy, the 'old' model.

Jacalyn (Jacky) O’Shaughnessy is an award-winning actress and model, recently discovered and featured by American Apparel at 62 years old. Her brave editorial for the company's lingerie line proved there is no limit on beauty, especially age-wise. Check out Jacky's inspiring confessions for the What's Underneath project here.

3. Katya Zharkova, the curvy model.

At the age of 33, Katya Zharkova is the top Russian plus-size model. She has worked with labels such as Forever 21 and Silver Jeans and was the first plus-size model to appear in Cosmopolitan Russia. She strongly believes and advocates that women have the right to live healthy and not obey society's beauty standards.

4. Melanie Gaydos, the 'ugly' model.

Melanie is definitely not your typical model, however, she has found the strength and confidence to be one even when the world is judging. Gaydos suffers from a genetic disorder known as ectodermal dysplasia. After facing a lot of struggles in her life, she says she finally feels comfortable in her own skin. Read more about Melanie's accomplishments here.

5. Diandra Forrest, the albino model.

Although she is African-American, Diandra Forrest has milk white skin, green eyes and natural blonde hair. Like many people with unconventional features, Diandra was teased and bullied a lot when she was a kid. Years later, she became the first albino model to ever sign a contract with a major modeling agency. She works regularly with MAC, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Vivienne Westwood, and fights discrimination against the albino community.

6. Chantelle Brown-Young, the multi-color model.

Chantelle Brown-Young, or Winnie Harlow, was diagnosed with vitiligo when she was 4. Vitiligo is a skin condition that causes patches of skin to lose pigmentation, resulting in a multi-colored effect. Chantelle admits she had to fight bullying and name-calling, but it all helped her rise above, appreciate and love her differences. Read more about this inspiring woman here.

7. Jillian Mercado, the model in a wheelchair.

Jillian might not be your typical catwalk model, but she really is a stunning personality with lots of bravery in her heart. Mercado suffers from spastic muscular dystrophy and uses a wheelchair to navigate. But that didn't stop her from graduating from New York's Fashion Institute of Technology, interning at magazines like Allure, working with Diesel and becoming the Executive Editorial Director for WeTheUrban.

8. Andreja Pejic, the androgynous / transgender model.

Believe it or not, Andreja was born Andrej. Andreja Pejic spent years billed as an "androgynous" male model, until she came out as a transgender female in 2014. Pejic was initially known for modeling for both men's and women's shows. This year she underwent sex reassignment surgery and even started a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise funds for a documentary about her life. Find out more about Andreja's story here.

9. Viktoria Modesta, the one-legged model.

Viktoria Modesta Moskalova is a Latvian-born singer/songwriter and model. Due to a hospital accident at birth she had problems with her left leg and at the age of 19 decided to have it amputated. However, Viktoria's drastic decision had no impact on her career. In fact, she wittily calls herself a "bionic woman" and proves you can kick ass even with one leg.

Sup Travellers?! Meet 30-year-old UK native Jono Lancaster. He lives with Treacher Collins syndrome which is a condition which affects the development of bones and tissues in the face and affects 1 in 50,000 people. 

But despite his condition he was still able to live a relatively normal life. He got a partner and a job to support them both.

Last week, Lancaster made a point to visit a boy whose journey with Treacher Collins was just beginning: 2-year-old Zackary Walton. He wanted to encourage him and tell him that he can still live a normal life.

“I would have loved to have met somebody like myself when I was younger ... somebody who had got a job, got a partner and said to me ‘these are the things you can do, you can achieve’,” Lancaster told Adelaide Now.

On November 17, Lancaster and Zackary met for the first time and Lancaster uploaded an image to his Facebook account with the caption: "Today and over the next couple of days I get to hang out with this little dude and his amazing family in beautiful Adelaide."

Hats off to Lancaster. I'm sure he can be a great inspiration and mentor to the young lad. 

In this day and age I think everyone needs a mentor, especially one who they can relate to. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

Sup Travellers?! If you ever find yourself making up excuses as to why you can't do something just remember Kayla Montgomery's story and her amazing determination despite all odds.

Kayla was a star soccer player who got all the praise in her middle school for her amazing skills but one day she got  injured on the field and strangely lost the feeling in both of her feet. A doctor diagnosed her with a very aggressive form of inflammatory disease Multiple Sclerosis when she was only 14.

She was crushed when she found out that she had to give up soccer but she was convinced she didn’t need to stop being an athlete altogether. She started running track, going against her doctor's orders.

She became excellent at it, running 40 miles each week despite her illness but as she began competing, she noticed that her legs would go numb about 1 mile into the race.

That’s when her coach, determined to help Kayla become a star athlete, came up with the idea that would change her life forever. During every race Kayla competes in, her coach, Patrick Cromwell, waits at the finish line to catch Kayla when her legs go numb. Her team then helps ice her legs until she regains feeling.

Today, she’s an award-winning long distance runner and a true inspiration to anyone who feels held back by life.

I love Kayla's story. I really do. She didn't let her disease park her up but instead she let it motivate her to work even harder. I think we can all take a page out of Kayla's book. Her entire story is in the video above. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

Sup Travellers?! We all know those people who are always on their phones and never present even though they are in your presence. It's either they are checking their Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp, etc etc.

The video above, made by young filmmaker Matthew Abeler, shows a father dealing with his sons who are both not present at the dinner table but it has a very unexpected twist that will put a big grin on your face.

It really does put our overuse of technology into perspective. Check it out above. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

Sup Travellers?! Trash is always annoying no matter if it's in your own house or out on the streets but you know what they say: one man's garbage is another man's treasure.

Portugese street artist Artur Bordalo takes people's unwanted trash and turns them into something incredible.

The trash, which included tractor tires and corrugated metal along with all manner of other scrap material, was arranged carefully into a giant owl sculpture on the side of a building in Covilhã. The sculpture, called Owl Eyes was created for the city's arts festival, WOOL, which seeks to promote the arts in urban spaces.

Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

Sup Travellers?! I don't wear makeup so I have very little knowledge about foundation and eye shadow and whatnot but Erin La Rosa, deputy editorial director at Buzzfeed, says she's worn makeup almost every day since she was 12 so she's a bit of an expert in the field.

However Erin decided to go a week without makeup and what she learned is definitely worth sharing.

"I just wanted to know if my confidence would stay the same without it."

See more of what Erin has to say in the video above. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

Sup Travellers?! I usually will give a small description of the video I post but --- I CAN'T EVEN!!! 

I'll assume that the video is about empowering chickens to love their bodies because chickens are clearly the most insecure creatures on two feet. That's the best I could do [LOL]. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
