Meet Brooklyn based blogger and model, Caxmee, who proves that you can defy the odds and still be beautiful and confident, regardless of your physical attributes.
Caxmee’s right leg was amputated in 2005 after she was diagnosed with bone and lung cancer. Even though she was given only 3 weeks to live, she defied the odds and today, is one of the prominent models and fashionistas on Instagram.
She models head wraps for designer Famndijam, makes affordable and fashion-forard prosthetic leg covers for men and women and is also an ambassador for Alleles Design Studio.
Caxmee, 26, shares her style and traveling on her instagram.
In an interview with blackgirllonghair, she said:
”I haven’t been too content about the mainstream imagery of beauty. I’ve made it my personal mission to infiltrate the “beauty industry”- Walking down the street with crutches and a prosthetic leg, people often shout “you go girl! you’re still beautiful” STILL?…. I AM beautiful and I’m here to show you how beautiful I am inside and out.”
