PPEP's 50th Anniversary
OUR KEYNOTE - JESSICA COX, MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER, GOODWILL AMBASSADOR, AUTHOR, ADVOCATE, AND MENTOR
Born without arms, Jessica Cox could have succumbed to the low expectations that ushered her into this world. In spite of them all she graduated from college, learned to swim, drive a car, surf, scuba dive, fly an airplane, become a Taekwondo State Champion, and live independently using her feet in ways others who take their hands for granted can only imagine. She holds the title of the first person without arms to get a black belt in ATA Martial Arts and the Guinness World Record for the first pilot to fly with her feet. Yet, her greatest triumph in life stands far above any physical feat. It is her unrepentant regard for herself as a whole person, her high degree of selfacceptance that gives her the freedom and power to insist that society accept her, too, just as she is.
