(Scroll down for video) A young woman who was born without legs, did not let her disabilities stop her from accomplishing great things in life.

23-year-old Kanya Sesser, who was born without legs, is a multi-sport athlete, and she now has a career as an underwear model.

When Sesser was born without legs in Thailand, her parents abandoned her on the steps of a Buddhist temple. Sesser, was adopted by a couple in Portland, Oregon, when she was 5 years old.

Since then, she has overcome the odds to prove that her disabilities do not have to limit her. Sesser enjoys skateboarding, skiing and surfing, and she is now an underwear model for the PantyProp underwear company.

PantyProp underwear is designed to hide a sanitary napkin and hold it in place while preventing leakage and discomfort.

Sesser, who goes by the slogan “no legs, no limits,” said that the PantyProp is about empowering women to be comfortable and feel sexy in their own skin. “I’m sexy in my own skin,” she said.
