Kanya Sesser was born without lower limbs, but that hasn’t stopped her from being a successful athlete and model.

As a Paralympic competitor, the 23-year-old began doing sports modeling for major brands, including Nike, and has parlayed that into a career modeling street wear and even lingerie.

“I just love being in front of the camera,” Sesser told PEOPLE. “Ever since I was little, I would take pictures a lot just to have fun and show my life story.”

Sesser stars in the newest campaign for PantyProp, in which she is pictured doing everyday tasks. The photos show that she can take on daily challenges – big and small – despite any physical limitations.

“It’s about women empowerment – be comfortable in your skin,” says Sesser. “I’m sexy in my own skin.”

For Sesser, there was no hesitation to pose in her underwear.

“The focus of the photos I do is free beauty, free body, free mind,” she says. “I’m fit, and I feel comfortable [in lingerie].”

The Thailand-born beauty is currently training for the 2018 Winter Paralympic Games, and has a TV show in the works.
