Kanya Sesser, 23, was born without legs. But she hasn’t let that keep her from living a normal life and pursuing her dreams.
Despite being abandoned on the steps of a Buddhist temple in Thailand when she was a child – due to her physical appearance – she never let that affect her self-esteem.
A compassionate couple adopted her when she was five years old, and took her to their home in Portland, Oregon.
And now, Kanya, who is an active skier, skateboarder and surfer, makes over $1,000 a day as a lingerie model, Daily Mail reports.
Speaking on her appearance, she says, “It’s something fun and it shows my story – I’m different and that is sexy. I don’t need legs to feel sexy.”
She totally loves modelling and wants the world to know “It’s something fun and it shows my story – I’m different and that is sexy.”
Also, she doesn’t use a wheelchair and prefers to get around on a skateboard or walking on her hands.
She loves extreme sports and hopes to compete in mono-ski competition at the 2018 Winter Paralympics South Korea
Kanya also revealed that she hopes to continue modelling as she trains for the Paralympics and is also writing a book about her courageous journey from orphan to model.
