She calls her rarely seen body type 'the model of the future,' and it's redefining what's sexy
Beauty comes in all different packages.
You've never seen a video quite like hers.
But before you get to it, here's what makes her fascinating.
Viktoria Modesta is a talented, beautiful alternative pop artist. What makes her stand out?
Her leg was damaged during birth , and she went through 15 surgeries attempting to correct it. At age 20, she had a voluntary leg amputation to improve her mobility . Did she let this stop her?
Nope, she feels empowered.
Like many girls, she dreamed of becoming a pop star and a model, but the door was closed to her . Her body type was rarely seen in the media.
The industry didn't make room for amputee artists.
Viktoria kicked that door down.
She performed for billion s at the Paralympics and starred as the Snow Queen with Dancing on Ice, wearing a Swarovski prosthetic leg.
As a rising star, she's pushing limits and challenging mainstream media to rethink the norm.
She's redefining what's powerful and sexy.
Here's her one-of-a-kind music video below. Even if her European-style pop isn't your thing, the spike dance is super cool.
Some people refer to themselves as disabled and some don't; either choice is OK. But it's great to see people embrace what makes them different.
