For Jessica, the main challenge of being born without arms was the constant perception of others more than the physical adversityPowerPoint Presentation: “I had the habit of becoming very upset when people look at me walking in the street or eating with my feet. However, I learned to look only at the positive side of situations and this gave me the ability to utilize these positive vibrations to become an example for optimism.PowerPoint Presentation: Jessica considers her parents as role models to be followed and as pillars for her. “My mother is my model and she always told me that I could do all that I wanted to do. My father never shed a tear since my birth as he does not consider me to be a victim. It is difficult to be the father of a handicapped person. He was my base during the difficult moments and it was he who forged the person I am today."PowerPoint Presentation: The first time I learned to drive a car, it was thanks to some modifications. Even with that, after having learned well, I decided to remove the modifications placed in the car and now I hold a driving permit without restrictionsPowerPoint Presentation: Holder of a degree in Psychology from the University of Arizona, she always attracts attention when she fills her car with gas.PowerPoint Presentation: She is able to write 25 words per minute, dry her hair, put on her make-up, and wear her contact lenses at the same ease as anyonePowerPoint Presentation: Jessica, 26 years old and 1.55 meters tall, is the first lady in history to pilot a plane without armsPowerPoint Presentation: This inspiring lady and heroine for numerous persons, irradiates always joy and is proof of having a great sense of humor ; on Mother’s Day last year she flew alone by herself without anyone accompanying her, dragging a notice board saying simply : “Look Mom, without arms !”PowerPoint Presentation: “Sometimes fear starts from the lack of knowledge of the unknown. As soon as I started flying, I realized that my fear came because I knew too much about the subject . There is a universal fear, that of the lack of confidence in yourself."
