Christina Stephens is not only an occupational therapist and amputee, but also LEGO Craftsman of the Day.

The prestigious award is well deserved by Stephens, who built herself a prosthetic leg out of Legos… and it works. Who would’ve known our beloved little plastic blocks from childhood could also substitute a human leg?!

Stephens might have started a revolution. Next thing you know, everyone will have Lego limbs. Way to make a disadvantage trendy, Christina. We salute you.
