I would say there have been three key events that have had a profound affect in my life.
The first was losing my father when I was only 10-years-old. He died very suddenly and it has always served a warning to me to take good care of myself. I make sure I take regular exercise and have a good diet. Luckily the ability to work flexible gives me the time I need to get to the gym or a pilates class. After my father’s passing, my mother worked hard to provide for us and ensure we had a good education. She is fearless and an inspirational role model.
The second event was starting university. It opened my eyes to the world and showed me what was possible. It made me realise that I have desire to make an impact – whether that’s through the organisation I work for or helping the community where I live.
