Who it is that you are inspired by and why?
My mother. She taught me to seek out the unknown by traveling to exotic shores and to be brave enough to lead the unconventional life, turning my back on societal ‘success’ to chase my dream and heart. Childhood years spent on intrepid journeys with my mum into the unknown created this thirst for learning about the world and a deep belief that I could do anything and the world was my oyster. It was better training than anything I had learnt conventionally. At 84 years young my mum is still going strong hiking Anapurna, Machu Pichu, running outdoor activities in NZ and Piranha fishing in the amazon. She refuses to let a number define her and is true to her passion for adventure.
