Meet one of the most inspirational people in this world. Her name is Jessica Cox and she was born without arms. Now I sometimes find it hard living with one arm, imagine missing both… Still, nothing is holding Jessica back to pursue her dreams. She’s even a pilot now!

Jessica was born in 1983 without her arms. Living a normal life was not something that was expected for Jessica, but she did. Jessica can use her feet in some incredible ways. She can put on her own make-up, she’s a dancer, she achieved a black belt in Taekwondo. What can’t this woman do?

I was amazed to find out that Jessica is a pilot. Yes, seriously! Without her arms, she’s flying with her feet. Now that’s what I call inspirational! It took quite a while to find the right plane for her to fly in though,but Jessica didn’t give up. Something I admire her for. Now she’s flying for Handicap International to inspire kids with a handicap that nothing is impossible. Her motto? To ‘think outside the shoe’.
