Now, she's turned her disability into a strength claiming the ability to explore the extra space below her stump makes her feel "superhuman."
Stephens, who became famous after a video of her creating a prosthetic leg out of Legos went viral, said she decided to create the Lego leg after a co-worker dared her to do it.
"Challenge accepted," she reportedly responded to the dare.
“I liked the idea, because I am very comfortable with my body and like encouraging others to be more comfortable with theirs,” she said.
It took her two days to create the prosthetic leg out of Legos, but she says it isn't completely practical as she can only walk short distances with it. She's currently planning to build a "Lego Leg 2.0" that will include a functional ankle and foot.
In the meantime, here's a video of the first one that she made.
