I’m Sofie Cox, Vice-European champion wheelchair dancing, public speaker and occupational therapist from Belgium.
I was born with Spina Bifida.
From the day I was born, I have learned to fight, from my dreams, my future and my life. While they told my parents I would not be able to walk, a normal education would be too difficult for me and I would have bad motor skills. I decided to create the life I wanted.
In 2011 I became the first child major of my city. I can walk short distances and use a wheelchair outside of the house. In wheelchair dancing I became Vice- European champion in 2018 in the category “solo ladies”. And that same year I gratuated as an occupational therapist.
With the help of a loving family and a strong mindset, I never listed to the people who thought they could determine my limits. But I created the life I wanted to live myself. Without limits!
