I’m a triple amputee and a hot model — nothing holds me back

An Ecuadorian woman who lost both of her arms and one of her legs after a childhood accident now works as a full-time model — inspiring tens of thousands of people all around the world.

Victoria Salcedo, 26, was forced to have her limbs amputated at the age of 6 after she accidentally touched an electrical wire with a stick and suffered third-degree burns.

Over the ensuing years, the brunette became accustomed to using her right leg to complete daily tasks such as eating and doing her hair and makeup.

After being fitted for a prosthetic leg, Salcedo started to work out and soon became hooked on exercise.

“I never thought I’d be an influential person for other people,” she told Viral Press of her unexpected career as a model and influencer. “But I like to share my life with others. I like people writing to me and asking me questions, for them to know that they can count on me.”
