She is also a model, who began her modeling career when she was fifteen years old. She began her musical career when she was quite young and now at this stage, she has released several albums and songs. In several of her interviews, she revealed that her amputated leg is her motivation and is actually thankful for it which has inspired her to dream an incredible career.
In an interview with rightnow.org, she talks about how she views her disability and was quoted saying
To me, being disabled means you are limited in your life and assume there is a barrier between you and achieving the things you want. I simply don’t see it that way.
Born in Russia, due to her doctor's negligence her hip and legs were affected and had to go through 15 different surgeries before persuading her surgeons to amputate her leg at the age of 20.
Unlike others, she has taken her disability and turned that into her strength. In an interview with Futurism she said:
"Did it somehow dampen down my emotions? It definitely made me have a different sort of self-awareness,” she confessed. “You’re no longer paying attention to what Cosmopolitan magazine tells you. You’re not like, ‘I need to have this fashion, and these legs, and this body.’”
She further added:
"Once you experience living without a part of you, you start to really question what it is that really makes you feel like who you are,”
She even shared her notion about prosthetic hand/legs and its advancement in the present context and thanked technology for giving a platform to so many people like her.
“I generally think that technology is bringing us together. Just look at the internet. It allows someone from a totally different country to send a message, and you don’t know how many limbs they have, whether they are a woman or a man, an adult or a child…you just don’t have any idea. I believe that’s helping us become more unified and is also breaking down boundaries.”
This Latvian-born English singer-songwriter, performance artist, and model are currently under a contract with IMG Models.
Her music career started as the lead of Channel 4's Born risky initiative and Channel 4 paid £200,000 to debut a clip from "Prototype", Viktoria’s iconic new video, in an ad spot aimed at the ITV show’s peak audience of nearly 10 million viewers.
