Viktoria Modesta is a 28 year old Latvian singer-songwriter and model. She is an amputee.

Her condition was due to a doctor’s negligence when she was 12 years old which led to her undergoing a voluntary below the knee leg amputation to improve her mobility and safeguard her health

Her physicality has become known for challenging the modern perception of altered beauty.

Ours is a society where amputees are sometimes seen as incapable of living a normal fulfilled life. Upon research and scrutiny, we found out that 95% of the time this limitation is a result of the amputee’s feeling of low self-worth. This in turn affects their productivity and in turn affects the way the society sees them. It’s a vicious cycle that can only be broken by the amputees themselves.

According to Viktoria Modesta, “I have never felt comfortable thinking of myself as disabled and this has inspired me to actively challenge old-fashioned views. I’m hoping to set new principles in music and fashion, to rip up the rule book and develop a more empowering example of what it means to be a musician, model and artist.”
