2019 Rose Day Keynote Speaker

Jen Bricker – Born without legs, Jen’s biological parents left her at the hospital. One would think she would be destined for a life of hardship. However, the “hand of destiny” brought her an amazing adoptive family, who gave her one simple rule, “Never say the word ‘CAN’T.’”

As a child, Jen was obsessed with gymnastics, and her idol was gold-medalist, Dominique Moceanu. In fact, watching Dominique on TV helped inspire Jen to start competing herself. Seemingly against all odds, Jen went on to compete against able-bodied athletes and became a state champion in power tumbling. As part of her amazing story, and as a twist of fate, Jen later learned that her childhood gymnastics idol, Dominique Moceanu, was actually her biological sister.

Always challenging herself, Jen made the transition into an accomplished acrobat and aerialist. As such, she has traveled internationally and appeared as the headliner at prestigious venues, including The Shangri La Hotel in Dubai.

Jen’s incredible story has been featured on multiple shows, including 20/20 and Good Morning America. She is currently living in Los Angeles, and has added a successful speaking career to her list of
accomplishments, including being featured in well-renowned TED talks.

Jen hopes to inspire and motivate others to BELIEVE that anything is truly possible. Jen published her first book, Everything is Possible, that hit the New York Times Best Sellers list in 2016.
