PHOENIX, AZ — An obstacle is often a stepping stone to achievement. For Jessica Cox, she’s faced doubt from the moment she was born.
“I was born without arms for no medical reason, we didn’t know I would be born without them until I literally came out,” said Cox.
Like most parents, concern set in almost immediately.
“My mom especially worried about me and what future was in store for someone without arms,” said Cox.
Little did they know, her future would involve becoming a third-degree black belt, learning to play the piano, surfing, driving a car, and motivating millions along the way.
“I became addicted to accomplishment, and when you get that, you get a taste of wanting to do more,” said Cox.
