Marsha Elle Shares Adorable Photos of Her Artificial Leg.
Marsha Elle didn’t wear a pair of shorts in public until she was 23 years old. Now 25, she decided last year to pose for photos in a swimsuit.
She never expected to have the confidence to share the photographs. But when she did, her life changed completely.
“So much positive energy came back to me,” she said. “That’s when doors actually started opening up ― when I started being more transparent and vulnerable and honest about what’s going on. People of all ages and abilities could relate.”
Hundreds of amputees from around the world messaged her in dozens of languages. Her music career gained momentum.
Elle was born with proximal femoral focal deficiency, which causes a malformation of the upper thigh that makes one leg considerably shorter than the other.
When she was 9 months old, she traveled with her mother from Haiti to the U.S. to receive medical care. She got her first prosthesis when she was 5.
Are you discouraged, be courageous.
One word for her…
