This is an interview you will not want to miss! Wednesday  January 13th,  10:00-11:00 am CST

 Leslie Irby  hails from Atlanta and flew her first plane when she was 16 years old.  In 2013 at the age of 23 Leslie was involved in a car accident that paralyzed her from the waist down, but that wasn't going to stop her from obtaining her dream of  becoming a pilot. Leslie has obtained her Sport Pilots License  and is moving forward to obtain her private pilots license.

Please tune in to hear this amazing journey realizing a dream delayed is not a dream denied, and in her own words she plans to one day become a flight instructor and give the gift of flight to other "differently able people  the ability to fly." Leslie Irby also states, "my wheelchair is my blessing and I have much more rockin n' rollin to do".

Leslie Irby also just became an entrepreneur in Atlanta!   The name of her  business is Loc Doc ATL Hair Studio- she specializes in sisterlocks and other dreadlock styles.
