Spotlight on: Jessica Cox, black belt, pilot, speaker
Jessica Cox was born with no arms at all. Her mother was, naturally, devastated and worried for her daughter's future. Jessica had to face stares, ignorant comments and lack of self-confidence as well as the purely physical challenges of how to live and learn.
Jessica decided she would do her best not to let her disability prevent her from doing anything she wanted. She taught herself to drive and even fly a plane with her feet. Today she is a motivational speaker who uses her experiences to help others.
