Filipino-American inspirational speaker Jessica Cox has won a milestone for herself, her people and her disability – the arm-less woman won the best documentary film award for her film “Right Footed” at the Mirabile Dictu Film Festival in Vatican City.
The Movie “Right Footed” received the “Il Pesce d’ Argento” award for the Best Documentary Film in the 6th International Catholic Film Festival held on June 22, 2015.
Cox said she had no idea that her film had won until the trailer was shown as the award ceremony was spoken in Italian.
Jessica Cox is known to many as being a mega-inspirational speaker. Born without arms, she has flown airplanes, driven cars and lives a very normal life using her feet. Cox is the first person in aviation history to earn a pilot’s certificate without the use of her arms.
