Isaiah Acosta was born without a jaw. That didn’t stop him from showing the world just how loud his voice could be.
Despite the disadvantage, one teen decided he wasn’t going to let anything stop him from achieving his dream.
For most kids, learning how to speak is part of growing up. For Isaiah, it was a pain point for his whole life. Born without a jaw, Isaiah doesn’t have the ability to speak or eat by himself. Funny enough, Isaiah wanted to be a rapper.
Even with the struggle, Isaiah has found ways to make do.
Since he can’t talk or speak, the best form of communication for Isaiah is through text. For most conversations, he communicates by listening and typing on his phone. He does have one trick up his sleeve; facial expressions!
Since he isn’t able to talk or speak, his desire to become a rapper seemed strange to some.
A voiceless rapper is quite the dream! For Isaiah, the best way he found to express himself was through music and poetry.
“My voice just felt locked inside of me. Music helps me get that out… but I can’t do it alone”
Thankfully, Isaiah found a friend who was willing to stick with him to see his dreams accomplished.
Even as a kid, Isaiah was told he wasn’t going to live, and if he did, he wouldn’t be able to walk. It seems like he has a habit of disappointing people but in the best way! Living a life of overcoming obstacles is natural for him. When he decided to pursue music, he met a friend who could help him reach for the stars.
Trap House is a rapper who saw the potential in Isaiah.
Using his inner voice, Isaiah would write lyrics and poems for Trap House to perform and record. Trap House was essentially a willing mouthpiece for the silent poet. Together, they have recorded albums, done live performances, and, most importantly, become best friends.
The internet can be tough on Isaiah.
But, the cool part is that Isaiah doesn’t let it bother him. He knows his place in the world, not allowing others to determine his happiness.
Over the years, Trap House and Isaiah became good friends and partners – until disaster struck.
“He was my big brother”
In 2019, Trap House passed away from pancreatic cancer. His death was a massive blow to Isaiah. Even with his best friend dying, Isaiah trooped on. If there was one thing he could thank Trap House for, it was helping him to find his own voice.
Through it all, Isaiah teaches us an important lesson.
Isaiah has learned a lesson that many never know: Everyone has power and potential in their voice. It looks like Isaiah discovered his voice through rapping, even if he never said one word.
