Do not call her disabled! She is the real angel!Kelly Knox was born without her left forearm. For a disabled, it is difficult to find a job to survive. But she decided to be a top modle.

Five years ago the stunning blonde won a modelling TV competition which propelled her into the limelight, but things did not work out as she hoped.

Kelly came first in the BBC programme Britain's Missing Top Model and won a photoshoot with Rankin, a feature in Marie Claire and an introduction to Take 2 Models. They signed her but shortly after the show they went into administration.
In January, the consumer giant flew Kelly to Beijing to take part in the prestigious three-day beauty industry event. While in Beijing, Kelly was booked for an editorial shoot for Marie Claire China's April 2013 issue.
In August, she showed off her funny side in celebrity hidden camera comedy show I'm Spazticus for Channel 4. She fronted a hilarious spoof campaign against Limbs Made From Animal Origin.

'In my eyes, my role as an ambassador is to spread positivity, increase self esteem and confidence, encourage the young reach members to follow their dreams, to know that they are beautiful and difference is something to be proud of.

'We need positive disabled role models. Disability has been accepted in sport and TV but fashion has a long way to go,' she says.
