In today’s episode I talked with Isaiah Acosta and he is a 18-year-old from Phoenix who was born without pathways for oxygen to enter his body.He also was born without a jaw, has never tasted food and is mute,
But guess what?
He is a fucking rapper!
Now how that is even possible you probably thinking? Well, as human beings when we really truly want something and we are truly committed, we divorce our limiting stories we say to our self, we don’t make excuses, we don’t sit down and moan and cry- and we just fucking do it!
Isiah is an amazing example for all of us for what true passion and beliefs is all about. He didn’t let his life conditions limit him or his ability to pursue his dreams.
He was committed, very driven and worked his ass off in order to make it happen.

1.Tell me a lil bit about your childhood, how was it like to grow up different? And what did you do about it? (2:35-3:00)
Isaiah: I had a good childhood. My parents didn’t treat me different. That’s what helped me in life. I did required more care. Society has always been nice to me. I never let that destroy me.
2. I know that u been bullied in the past, what got you to get your head up and becoming very mental strong and what would you say to those young hustlers that still afraid to get their voice out and stand up for what they want?
Isaiah: I’ve been bullied most of my life, more so now. I don’t let that stuff define me as a person. Im not perfect, I do have feelings. But I choose to be happy. What has helped me is talking about it and sharing and helping others in the same situation. Im happy, the people that does this are miserable.
