Jess Quinn is, in her own words, quite literally a walking miracle. Her body has been completely restructured so that she could survive an aggressive cancer. Jess' leg was amputated when she was a young child, and she has worn a prosthetic leg ever since. She's created a successf...ul modelling career, has a huge following on social media, was on Dancing with the Stars and is outspoken on the subject of body diversity. She has strong messages about resilience. Over the last couple of years she's had a number of major setbacks with her legs and has been in constant pain and unable to do many of the things she used to do like running and dancing. Some days she couldn't get out of bed. Jess has a remarkable way of talking about her pain and difficulties, and is inspirational in her response to the difficulties that have beset her. Her philosophy embraces the fact that none of us get to keep the body we were born in; we all bear scars that become part of our stories. She's learned to change her narrative and be grateful for what she can do, rather than focus on the negatives.
