Prosthetic leg made from lego.

Having an amputation of any kind is a traumatic, life changing experience but Christina Stevens was determined to flip things around for her and has become an online star after she made her own prosthetic, from lego.

The 31-year-old lost her leg in a freak accident earlier this year, when her foot was crushed while she changed the brakes on her car.

Now, she is an internet phenomenon. A video where she builds a prosthetic leg out of Lego has over 860,000 views, and it’s only been live for a month.

Ms Stevens, who is an occupational therapist, said she got inspiration for the Lego stunt from a colleague who jokingly suggested it.

More than 2,500 people like Christina on the social media site, with her positivity encouraging other amputees around the world to share their stories.
