Inspirational girl with prosthetic chalkboard leg travels Europe taking incredible photos

Acquiring a disability is one of the most devastating things that can happen to a person. But sometimes in life, you have two options; to let it beat you down or to embrace your circumstances and make the very best out of what you have in front of you. Devon Gallagher, a graduate from Philadelphia, very wisely decided to go with the latter option and, as a consequence, made waves on the internet with her pictures, becoming an travel inspiration to all.

Devon was born with a congenital bone disease and tragically had to have her right leg amputated above the knee when she was only four-years-old. Her happiness, sense of humour and love of adventure, however, was not damaged in the slightest, so when she set out to travel Europe she came up with an ingenious idea. The 23-year-old spray-painted her prosthetic leg with chalkboard paint and wrote the name of every city she visited on it, creating some truly unique pictures in the process. Her post on Reddit has garnered thousands of views and made her a role model for anyone with problems getting them down.

Devon is a true inspiration to all and her actions send out a clear message that everyone should live life to the fullest, despite disabilities and difficulties thrown their way. As she puts it so perfectly herself: "Everyone has sh*t they have to deal with in life, mine just happens to be my leg. It's really not all that bad." You can check out her posts on her Reddit page.
