Jen Bricker, the amazing author, 'Everything Is Possible', was born without legs and with her heart on the opposite side of her chest. Her biological parents immediately gave her up for adoption, and 300 families were on a waiting list to adopt her; but the hand of destiny brought her an amazing family through Gerald & Sharon Bricker.

One would think she was destined for a life of hardships, but through the loving guidance and "never-say-can't" attitude fostered by the Brickers; Jen flourished and became obsessed with gymnastics – and like many girls her age her childhood idol was Olympic gold-medalist Dominique Moceanu.

Jen defied all odds and competing against able-bodied athletes became the State Champion in power tumbling. Jen went on to find out that her idol was in fact her biological sister and to an amazing career as an aerialist.

"Jen Bricker's fearlessness, faith, and unflinching determination prove that anyone with passion and a sense of purpose can achieve their greatest dreams. I'm inspired by her--and you will be too!"--Eva Longoria, actress, producer, director, activist

Jen won the Illinois State Power Tumbling Championship and placed 3rd in the Junior Olympics as a girl, has been a featured aerial performer in a previous Olympic games, and was named a Legend by the World Acrobatics Association in 2015. Now as an aerialist, Jen's health & fitness routine is very important. She's available to share more about her body image struggles, the rigorous routine she keeps, and the challenges she faced physically to get where she is today.

Jen came to hang out with AOL to discuss her new book which shows readers what they can accomplish when they remove the words coincidence and limitation from their vocabulary.
