Presenting my story:
While I’m on my journey I aim to present my story in every country and to as many people (majority will be to the younger generation) as possible. In my presentations I open up the discussion about mental health, chronic illnesses, self confidence, female empowerment and my journey todate. My mission, through my story is , that the younger generation go away with an increased awareness and acceptance to illnesses you can’t see (mental & chronic health), being inspired that boys and girls can go on to do whatever they want, gender irrelevant.
‘Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful presentation to my students. To say that you had a profound effect on them would be an understatement. The pupils were blown away by you, by your positivity and by the power of your inspirational message. Proof of this came from colleagues asking me who the guest speaker was that I’d had in as so many of the pupils talked about the impact you’d had on them. You really are an inspiration. We’ll follow you every step of the way.’June McCarthy, St. Patricks College, Cork, Ireland.
