bionic/prosthetic leg is trending online after sharing a powerful and
inspiration message about self confidence on her Instagram page.
My name is Asha John, I’m 23 years old. I became a left above knee
amputee April 2nd 2015 due to cancer in my knee. I don’t look down on
myself not do I need pity from anyone, I can still do everything I
used to just in a different way. Learning to walk with my prosthetic leg
wasn’t as bad as I thought, I now walk with a cane which I hope to get
rid of by the end of the year.
The only hard thing about being a amputee is getting adjustments to my
leg and that’s cause where I live (Barbados) the hospital isn’t well
equip to deal with prosthetic legs, but they get the job done
with a little advice.
People tend to stare because they aren’t accustomed seeing such a young
person with a prosthetic leg flaunting it all over the place. I love
myself I accept myself for who I am an what have happened. Life is good
and can only get better.
