Born without arms, Jessica Cox could have succumbed to the low expectations that ushered her into this world. In spite of them all, she earned two black belts in Taekwondo, graduated from college, and learned to swim, drive a car, fly an airplane, surf, scuba dive, and live independently using her feet in ways others who take their hands for granted can only imagine.

We’re excited to have Jessica Cox back on Savvy Central Radio. Jessica is World's First and Only Licensed Armless Pilot, who joined us back in February to talk about her upcoming documentary on her life called “RIGHTFOOTED”.  They are now in post production and anyone interested in donating can go to: www.rightfootedmovie.com

We are also joined today by her husband and Director of Operations Patrick Chamberlain and Molly Feltner Communications Officer at  Handicap International.

Today we’ll be discussing the recent advocacy work Jessica and Handicap International have been doing in Ethiopia. We’ll also discuss their work with the "International Disability Rights Treaty" which they are lobbying to get passed through the U.S. Senate.
