We interviewed Maria Lassen from Denmark who received her first UNYQ cover around 2 years ago. Maria is an inspiration for us all how she has overcome stigma, loss and learned to express herself in a positive way that is impacting everyone around her.

“Don’t try to blend in because it’s not possible. Just accept that you stand out and make something out of it. Make it cool because you can’t blend in, it’s impossible”. Those are the words of Maria Lassen from Denmark who is born with one leg and her advice to anyone that is dealing with stigma associated with limb loss.

Maria shared her story and message with us in this Facebook interview together with Jesper Larsen Certified Prosthetist from Bandagist-Centret
