Latvia-born singer and model Viktoria Modesta released her first music video on Channel 4, in which she gorgeously struts her bionic-looking leg. Being the first widely-known leg amputee pop star, she is a true inspiration to many.

The singer was born with a dislocated hip and leg, which greatly affected her social life at school. Enduring 15 ineffective surgeries back in Latvia, she moved to London, hoping for a better treatment. After even more failed procedures she finally convinced her doctors to amputate her leg, which eventually freed her of her complexes and boosted her self-confidence.

Now Viktoria is proud of what she went through, encouraging everyone to always follow their dreams, no matter the obstacles.
