Inspiring Story: Born without a Jaw & Unable to Speak, This Boy fulfilled his Dream to be a Rapper

All of us dream but not all of us achieve it and when we don’t achieve our dream we sink into a quicksand that makes us disgusted at our own self and we beat ourselves over not accomplishing what we sought out to accomplish. Isaiah could have done the same as he had to not only ask more of his talent but over physical limitations in order to soar above like artists who have achieved their dreams. Isaiah Acosta is a teenager from Phoenix who was born without a jaw. Due to this he cannot taste the food and takes it with the help of food pipes that are attached to his body. He has a medicine patch on his throat which contains tube to supply him with oxygen as he was born without pathways for oxygen to enter his body.

Communicating with others has not been easy, and he faced a ton of abuse from a lot of people before he could surround himself with people who cared for him and saw him someone with talent instead of liability or a burden. He uses sign language and texting to communicate with others and share his ideas.
