"Sometimes you have to be your own HERO."
"I was raised to be fierce, to fight the good fight nobly and with conviction. Today you may not win; tomorrow you may not win. But down the road will be one small victory that can change everything."

When Jen Bricker was born without legs, her biological parents left her at the hospital. One would think she would be destined for a life of hardship. However, the hand of destiny brought her an amazing adoptive family, who gave her one simple rule, “Never say CAN’T.” Jen started to conquer all the difficulties and obstacles in her life with strong belief that make her as a little but powerful lady today.
As a child, Jen was obsessed with gymnastics, and some of her earliest memories were of watching gymnastics on TV when she was six years old and trying to imitate the moves. During the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, United States, Jen was totally fascinated by Dominique Moceanu, the gymnastics gold-medalist. Mesmerized by her new idol, Jen was inspired to start competing herself. Seemingly against all odds, Jen went on to compete against able- bodied athletes and became a State Champion in power tumbling. As part of her amazing story, and as twist of fate, Jen later learned that her childhood gymnastics idol, Dominique Moceanu, was actually her biological sister when Jen was 16.
Everything is possible; she can do roller-skating, volleyball, power tumbling, and spinning from silk fabric thirty feet in the air. She was even being invited as the featured performer in Britney Spears “Circus” Tour in 2009. Besides from performing at mega events, Jen is a motivational speaker who has spoken at TEDx, universities, interviewed on TV, radio and magazines etc. in over 100 countries worldwide.
Everyone has a weakness in their life, how you handle it will determine the ending stories. Jen see her “disabilities” as advantages, she always bring light where there are shadows.
Jen has published her first book, Everything is Possible, in September of 2016.
