Noah Howard is like any other 19-year-old sophomore college student in New York, living with his roommate and enjoying a more independent way of life away from home. However, he surprises many of his classmates when he meets them and they find out that he doesn’t have arms. He is enjoying his college experience now and finding acceptance with other students, but socialising was a lot more difficult in his younger years.
Noah told Truly: “I didn’t have a lot of friends, I was bullied.” As the bullying grew more intense, Noah’s mental health worsened. To get through these challenging times, Noah found solace in other areas of his life. He has now taken his passion for art into his adult life and studies the subject at college.
