Jessica Cox: Her life.. Her story..

I heard this one over the radio. Can you fly an airplane without your arms? If you can't well check this inspiring story of a Filipina. Last year, 26 year old Filipina Jessica Cox was the first and only Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) licensed pilot to fly an airplane using only her feet. Wow! That was amazing. This girl can fly a plane, drive a car and a Taekwondo black belt holder but she was arms-less since birth. I can’t imagine the hardships she went through as she grew up. But of course the person behind all these achievements and who never let her down but moreover supported her all throughout everything is her ever loving mother.

She was born in Tucson, Arizona in 1983 but doctors can not explain why she was born without arms. Aside from her mom, Jessica strongly believed that her being a Filipina is a huge part of her being. Her being independent and that somebody who has the courage to come out in the open and do things without having fear, are things she attributed to being a Filipina. This time she wants to be a scuba diver someday.
