A cold Monday morning in deepest darkest December is not often something to savour, but this morning’s train ride in was brightened up considerably by reading a story of bravery and determination from the Metro Newspaper.
The story was about the 25 year old Jessica Cox, who is the first pilot to fly with just her feet after a genetic defect meant that she was born with no arms. Not only did she have that to deal with, she also had a fear of flying.
According to the Metro article, Jessica said that “I’ve been terrified and fascinated of flying for as long as I can remember.’
Her story has certainly lightened up my day
