Subject: Fw: First woman in history to fly an airplane without arms
Determination can overcome all obstacles : Hats off to a special woman, Jessica Cox.
Jessica Cox, who was born in the early 80’s, has become the first woman in history to fly a plane, without arms.
Jessica was born with an unexplained birth defect, which resulted in her missing both of her arms. But this never stopped her from doing anything.
Jessica’s always lived life to the fullest, and before learning to fly an airplane, she was involved in gymnastics, dancing and singing as a child. Then, she went onto swimming, surfing, driving a car, putting her own petrol in her car, playing the piano and even earning her black belt in Tai Quan Do.
Despite people’s perceptions, Jessica seems to cope through life and her insecurities quite well, she is now an Inspirational Speaker, who empowers others to live their lives to the full, just as she has.
