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.
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.
