Kanya Sesser – Whatever It Takes
YouTube video Young & Reckless
Kanya Sesser is a true inspiration. The 23 year old beauty was born without legs in Thailand and was abandoned by her parents on the steps of a Buddhist Temple. After being raised by monks for a few years and being shuffled back and forth between foster homes, she was adopted by an American family. Not one to feel sorry for herself, Kanya was determined to live out the American dream, despite her disability. Not only does she fully function without the use of prosthesis or a wheel chair, but she surfs, skateboards, dances, and participates in a variety of action sports. She is also a motivational speaker and model.
