There have been many stories written about Jessica Smith; it is that of a child born without a left arm, a teenager who went on to represent Australia for swimming in the 2004 Paralympic Games, and a young adult who broke free from an eating disorder.
But perhaps the most important story there is to tell when it comes to Jessica, is that of the inspiring woman she is today; an internationally recognised advocate for positive body image, a loving wife and an author & storyteller.
With all these accolades aside, Jessica's most proudest life moment is recently becoming a mother for the first time. This new path to motherhood inspired Jessica to create a series of books that celebrates children's differences, and encourages self confidence, no matter their physical appearance.
It was the love of netball that motivated West Coast Fever player Verity Simmons through the hard times as her passion and determination drove her to pursue a life as a netballer.
The 25-year old has overcome her fair share of adversity including travel, shoulder surgery and being diagnosed with Type One Diabetes.
Her fearless mentality to perform at the highest level whilst juggling a serious health condition is inspiring.
