MOSINEE - Imagine having to drive a car, brush your teeth and do all the normal things without your arms.
Jessica Cox has been doing that since birth, but that hasn't stopped her from conquering her fear.
"My greatest fear was flying. So I decided to face it head on and become a pilot." said Cox.
But it hasn't been a smooth ride her whole life.
"I was the type in junior high and high school student who wanted to blend in," Jessica said.
"Who wanted to go unnoticed, but my message now, because I've grown into an adult my confidence levels have increased, is to teach others to be confident about themselves about their difference and it's ok to be different."
That's why Jessica came to Mosinee high school Tuesday.
Student Anthony Gesick helped bring her here.
He's partially blind and is unable to operate a vehicle or fly a plane, but that's not stopping him either.
Jessica wants all the students to know they can do anything.
"I hope people can take away to celebrate differences. To realize that we are very different. We're also very similar in many ways," said Cox.
"So we all want to be accepted and we should accept ourselves. If I can fly an airplane, there's so much they can do."
Students seem to be catching on to her message.
"Don't use 'I can't' because obviously you can overcome anything you want," said Junior Mosinee High School Student, Jonah Siranni.
"You don't have to give up. Don't do it because you can do anything you want."
RHINELANDER - Wild Instincts celebrated the release of BBC's "Supercharged Otters," which filmed at Wild Instincts in Rhinelander.
Saturday's viewing at Rouman Cinema in Rhinelander had a complementary showing of the episode.
The episode features otters that spent seven months with Rehabilitation Director Mark Naniot and his team.
The episode gives people a look into the life of an otter.
"Like everything else it's the web of life. Everything's all interconnected and even if it's just the pure enjoyment of watching an otter swim or catch a fish and seeing how playful they are sliding down a mudslide or sliding through the snow that alone is immeasurable really," said Naniot.
