Standing at 3ft 4 inches tall, Dru Presta is showing the world that sexy has no height restrictions.

Two years ago, Dru moved from her small-town life, to shiny Los Angeles so she could pursue her dream of breaking the fashion industry. Whilst studying for a degree in fashion marketing, she has also been breaking barriers with her modelling career.

The 21-year-old oozes confidence and sass now, but it has taken her a long time to get there. Born with achondroplasia, a form of <a href="" target="_blank">dwarfism</a>, she was made to feel an outcast in her hometown of Reno, Nevada and says she was bullied for 15 years because of her size.

She says she got into modeling because she didn’t want others to feel like they can’t express themselves. “I don’t want them to feel like they have to wear what everybody else is wearing, just because that’s what offered in our size. I want people to be able to feel as free as I do" says the demi diva.

Dru hopes her modelling work will encourage people of all shapes, size and backgrounds to be included in the fashion world. She adds: “<a href="" target="_blank">Modeling</a> has boosted my confidence a ton. I feel a lot sexier in front of the camera, it’s like a different Dru that likes to be exposed. Honestly, there is just no other words, I love being in front of the camera."
