Most of the time, a story about a 23-year-old woman living in Los Angeles who works as a model isn’t particularly interesting. It seems like just about every semi-attractive female that lives in Southern California claims to be a model of some sort. But Kanya Sesser is different. Not just because she earns more than $1,000 per day working as a model. But also because she was born without legs.

Kanya’s incredible story is documented over at The Daily Mail. At one week old, she was abandoned at a Buddhist temple in Thailand. At age five, she was brought to Oregon by her adopted parents and grew up in the United States.

At age 15, she began her modeling career with various sports brands including Billabong. She was then scouted by various underwear companies and started working as a lingerie model.

So fun doing an interview today! Can’t wait for Saturday. #nolegsnolimits

Despite being born without legs, Kanya says it hasn’t stopped her from having a successful modeling career. She says, “I’m different and that is sexy. I don’t need legs to feel sexy.”

In addition to modeling, Kanya also enjoys skiing, skateboarding and other extreme sports. She’s even begun training for the 2018 Winter Paralympics in South Korea, where she hopes to compete in the mono-ski. She says, “I like expressing myself in a different way than people usually see. This is just who I am.”
