    Even at a young age her disability never held her back, and she always strived to do as much as she could.

    Overtime, she's competed in a variety of sports including surfing, wheelchair rugby, and racing.

    Sessers has a wheelchair, but prefers to get around on a skateboard, and is damn good at it.

    Currently, her main gig is modeling, which she's been doing since she was 15. What started out as athletic shoots has now progressed into bikini and lingerie modeling.

    "[Lingerie modeling] something fun and it shows my story — I'm different and that is sexy," she told the New York Daily News. "I don't need legs to feel sexy."

    While she does like getting dolled up, Sesser said she prefers a natural look.

    On top of modeling and everything else she already does, Sesser is also training to compete in the 2018 Winter Paralympics and plans to publish a book on her life story next year.

    In a Caters TV video she says her life motto is, "No legs, no limits!", and she's certainly living proof of that.
