״The Making of a Superhero״

Originally from Philadelphia, Elissa Sagoskin now lives in Jerusalem, Israel. An accomplished athlete, Elissa works as personal fittness trainer and coach, but her hardest and most satisfying work is that of a mom to her son – Amichai. As Amichai meets the daily challenges of CP, Elissa has redefined for herself what constitutes as a disability and strives to change common misconceptions in her community. She hopes others will continue to embrace difference and create an inclusive environment. Elissa writes about her journey with Amichai at www.changeperceptions.net
