ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Videos posted on YouTube have made an Internet star of 25-year-old Tisha Shelton of St. Louis County. Now, if she could only find a job.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Shelton was born without arms. She has gained a great deal of attention since posting videos showing how she gets by in life -- simple things such as making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, eating it, getting dressed.

The videos went viral. Total hits have surpassed 1.6 million. But Shelton says they don't pay the bills and she's seeking employment.

She's hoping for something in graphic design and has an associate degree in graphic communications. She has worked previously for schools and at a pizzeria.
