The Sole to Persevere
Jessica Cox has been facing obstacles her entire life. Born without arms, she has had to learn how to live life differently from everyone else, but that has never made her feel different as a person.
"My dad said he never cried over my condition once when I was a child because he never thought I was a victim," said Jessica. "I am very lucky to have been raised that way. I don't feel like a victim at all."
Jessica has gained amazing flexibility and strength from her condition, performing most daily activities with her feet. She is also an international keynote and motivational speaker, as well as the world's first licensed armless pilot and first armless black-belt in the American Taekwondo Association.
"My life has taught me to keep a positive attitude and be creative in everything," Jessica told us. "There's always more than one way to do something, you just need to figure it out."
Thank you for showing us your courage Jessica!
