Kanya shared: ‘It’s something fun and it shows my story – I’m different and that is sexy. I don’t need legs to feel sexy.’

The beauty said she has modeled for Volcom, Nike and Rip Curl Girl, but those shoots have not been verified. 2CA26AF300000578-3244843-image-a-22_1442937434238 2CA26A9700000578-3244843-image-a-30_1442937640070 tumblr_mwsrw9k8wK1rn7o2to1_1280

After beginning her modelling career at age 15 by posing for a number of sports brands, including doing a feature for Billabong, Kanya said she was then scouted by underwear brands.

She revealed: ‘I enjoy making money from it and I love showing people what beauty can look like.’
