When it comes to body confidence, Kanya Sesser's got it.

The 23-year-old California native was born without legs, but hasn't let her disability stop her from becoming a successful lingerie model. Her motto? "No legs, no limits."

"I love showing people what beauty can look like," she told The Daily Mail. "I don't need legs to feel sexy."

Kanya, who was abandoned on the steps of a Buddhist temple in Thailand as a baby, began modelling when she was 15, working with sportswear brands like Billabong, Nike and Rip Curl. She then was scouted by lingerie companies, and according to The Huffington Post UK, now earns more than $1,000 a day.

"I've always had body confidence, pretty much throughout my whole life," she said in a video interview with Caters TV. "Society's got nothing on us, it's just how you feel. Be confident. Life's still going, life is valuable. And we have this one moment, one life."

Along with modelling, Sesser also engages in extreme sports and uses a skateboard instead of a wheelchair. She hopes to compete in the mono-ski competition at the 2018 Winter Paralympics held in South Korea.
