Episode #32: Turning Obstacles Into Opportunity | Jessica Long

United States Paralympic Swimmer, Jessica Long joins Isaiah on the thirty-second episode of the Dream On Podcast. Jessica shares how going through obstacles can produce opportunity. Jessica was born in Siberia, Russia. Being young and unable to properly take care of a child that had health needs, her mom gave her up for adoption at the age of thirteen months. Due to fibular hemimelia, her lower legs were amputated at the age of eighteen months. Having a strong sense of determination and an endless amount of energy, she began swimming. Soon after this she began to swim competitively. Jessica has held multiple world records and won multiple gold medals. She has a grand total of 23 Paralympic medals. Listen to Jessica’s testimony and be encouraged that it doesn’t matter what you have gone through or going through currently, God as a plan for your life. Dream On is thankful for Jessica taking the time to sit down and talk and we look forward to seeing how God is going to use her talents at the Olympic level.
