A model who was born without legs is not letting that hold her back - earning more than £650-a-day flaunting her body in racy underwear.

Kanya Sesser is breaking down the barriers of the modelling world by showing that just because she is different, that doesn't mean she isn't sexy.

The 23-year-old, from California, has been determined to overcome her disability since she was 15 when she began doing sports modelling.

And after shooting for a number of outlets she was soon scouted by underwear and bikini brands.

Now she combines her modelling career with motivational speaking and her love of sports - currently training for the 2018 Winter Paralympics.

Kanya, who lives in Los Angeles, USA, said: "I was mainly doing athletics shoots then as I got older I got into lingerie modelling.

"It's something fun and it shows my story - I'm different and that is sexy, I don't need legs to feel sexy.

"I enjoy making money from it and I love showing people what beauty can look like. These images show my strength.

"Modeling wasn't something I'd always dreamed of doing - it just happened for me and I got used to it.

"I like expressing myself in a different way than people usually see.

"I'm very honest, I'm real - I'm never going to behave different to anyone. This is just who I am.

"I'd love to keep modelling while in training for the Paralympics."

Kanya was adopted from an orphanage in Thailand when she was five-years-old and brought to Portland, Oregon, by her new family.

Instead of a wheelchair, she uses a skateboard to get around and learned to walk on her hands.

Kanya loves extreme sports and hopes to compete in mono-ski in the Winter Paralympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in 2018.

One of her biggest fans is new boyfriend Brian, who she has been dating for the past month.

She added: "Brian is awesome - he is very supportive of everything I do.

 

"He recently saw me modelling for first time and told me he thought it was beautiful and unique."

She is also working on a book about her incredible journey through life, set to be published next year.

She added: "Outside of work I don't wear make-up.

"I can be girly and I don't mind wearing it  I like getting my make-up done when I am on a shoot.

"But people say I'm beautiful whether I'm wearing makeup or not."
