Born without hands, you might wonder how she will survive and do most of her chores. But, this amazingly gorgeous woman does all basic things a man or woman born with arms can do and even better.

Over time, she has mastered how to use her feet just the way another person uses his hands.

She uses her feet to do basically what any hand can do. With her feet, she can type on a keyboard, drive, scuba dive, fly a plane, play piano, surf and do virtually anything you can think of.

In fact, she currently holds the Guinness world record as the world’s first licensed armless pilot. She’s also the first armless black-belt holder in the American Taekwondo Association.

“It was a long journey to become a pilot because it took three different airplanes, not because I wrecked them, but the logistics of the control panel were challenging for me,” Cox noted about her challenges in trying to fly a plane.

She has used her story to motivate many others, sharing her message of hope in about 20 different countries. She also does humanitarian works.

She has an autobiographical self-help book, ‘Disarm Your Limits’ in which she shared the story of her journey so far.

She writes well with her feet.

Cox is one woman who has shown that giving up is not in her DNA. What a phenomenal woman!
