#23 "Suited or not, staying positive" Featuring Accidental amputation of both legs, Myu Ashihara (model and influencer)
She had both her legs amputated in an accident when she was 16 years old. At that time, she asked the doctor a surprising question.She got her first taste of the stage at age 18 as a model, but she had no interest in the spotlight. The “bias” she felt on stage led her to become a model and influencer. Last year she became the first wheelchair user to walk in the Milano Collections. How is barrier-free accessibility different from Japan?
