Yep, she’s got a prosthetic leg.

21-year-old Paola lost her leg two years ago during a car accident caused by a drunk driver.

Instead of hiding her prosthetic leg, Paola embraces it.


And she’s proving she can do anything anyone with two legs can do, like swim.

Or learn a choreographed dance.

And, of course, slay at the gym.

And having one leg isn’t keeping her from posting the expected Instagram shots, like the hotdog leg snap.

Or an #OOTD.

Her followers have come up with the cutest name for her.

She’s making her dreams come true one step at a time.

For that, Paola, we’re head over heels for you.
