Impairment
She was born with a left leg predisposition disorder. Her knee was higher than a normal leg and her foot and toes were not aligned. In 2014 she chose to have her foot amputated as she was self-conscious about the way she walked because it drew attention to her impairment, and she was limited in the clothes she could wear.
