Beauty standards are rapidly changing and that's a damn good thing for society. One incredible example of this is Kanya Sesser, a 23-year-old woman who was actually born without legs. For all the limitations such a handicap puts on someone, she's actually turned it into an advantage and now makes around $1,000 a day as a lingerie model. I don't think it's a stretch to say that we would all do some truly terrible things for $1,000 a day. In an world where the impossibly skinny buxom, long-legged women of the world are at a distinct advantage, it's inspiring and refreshing to see someone overcome adversity and turn it into something positive.

Not only has Sesser made waves in the modeling world, but she uses a skateboard instead of a wheel chair and also plans to compete in the mono ski at the Paralympics in 2018, flexing the kind of drive and determination that would put all our fragile minds and bodies to shame. Like, I can just about roll over and straight up fucking die anytime I stub my toe let alone be faced with any sort of real opposition in life. Well, now I hate myself more than usual. How are you feeling?
