JEN BRICKER: Everything
is Possible 

Born
without legs, one would think Jen Bricker would be destined for a life of
hardship. However, her amazing adoptive family gave her one simple rule, “Never
say can’t” and helped her forge a life of triumph, not tragedy. Always
challenging herself, Jen transitioned from a State Champion in power tumbling
into an accomplished acrobat, aerialist, speaker and bestselling author.
