Kanya Sesser, Paralympian and Lingerie Model

Kanya Sesser, Paralympian and Lingerie Model

Kanya Sesser is a Paralympian athlete, skateboarder, surfer and skier  – and her latest fabulous string to her bow is lingerie modelling.

Despite being born with no legs, Kanya told Closer magazine this week that she has never allowed her disability to hold her back. In fact, instead of relying on a wheelchair, the inspirational 22-year old gets around on a skateboard and now earns up to £750 a day modelling lingerie.

Kanya, who is from Los Angeles, told Closer: “People are often surprised when I tell them I’m a model, but that doesn’t bother me. I was born this way and I’ve never let it hold me back. When I was little I learnt to walk on my hands, and I’m fiercely independent. I’m always on the go – I love being active and have been modelling for seven years after being spotted by a talent scout.

“I get lots of compliments about my looks and feel confident in my own skin – I love my boobs and my bum. I keep fit and eat healthily, and modeling lingerie and bikinis makes me feel sexy. I get lots of attention from guys and while I’m single, I always have a good sex life. I want to show other people that disability doesn’t have to hold you back. I’m physically capable of having a baby, but I’m not looking to start a family or get married. I’m too busy and I just want to live life to the full.”

So, the next time you look at your legs in the mirror with an “ugh, they’re too fat, too skinny, too…whatever”, remember Kanya and shut the hell up! What an inspiration to us all.
