And we started a three year journey, which was originally only supposed to cover my wedding, but then went and the film crew followed us to Ethiopia to help with inclusive education for people with disabilities. And also to the Philippines after the super typhoon.”

As a motivational speaker, Cox has shared her wisdom and experience with thousands of people. And now she is hoping that the documentary can be an even bigger platform for her positive message.
