How This Bikini Competitor & Amputee Found Confidence

The world of bodybuilding has witnessed several women breaking stereotypes to make a mark in a man’s sport. While the able bodied women have without a doubt gained immense popularity and encouraged several other women to leave their comfort zone, there are some like Devin Coffin who’ve set a whole new example for physically disabled women.

Devin Coffin was born a congenital amputee, which means she has lived without her left arm since birth. Though she doesn’t let that stop her! After Devin fell in love with lifting and working out, she trained to be a bikini competitor.

Despite the challenges she has faced as an amputee, Devin key to success is her confidence and deeply held belief that she is AWESOME.


Devin’s amazing story is part of our collaboration with The Happiness Stories and director Ron Parida, who presents portraits of individuals who have been dealt life’s toughest challenges, but who choose to persevere and do inspiring things.
