However, in my 32 (yes 32, I’m not lying!) years, I guess there is actually quite a lot I have done, and quite a lot that isn’t in the image above. I have taken and passed exams, I went to University, I played rugby (photographic evidence above), I have been both bridesmaid and bride and consequentially a divorcee.
I have passed my cycling proficiency, my driving theory test and my actual driving test all be it second time around 🙂
I have lived in many places, Twickenham is where my heart will always be but I am drawn to the sea and now settled in Brighton with my greatest achievement to date, my beautiful daughter and my gorgeous guy.
I have been feisty, I have been a force to be reckoned with, even from an early age. 20 years ago I wrote to Blue Peter to complain about the amount of “one I prepared earlier” demonstrations they had when they were so adamant about recycling. In return I had a very polite thank you letter and a rare green Blue Peter badge from the BBC.
I have managed teams of people in promotions, sales and business advice. I can talk to anyone from the crazy person on the bus to the heads of British business.
I have lived in the shadows of others and lived through mental health issues and eating issues. I have come out stronger and more confident each and every time. Through everything, I know I am a fighter.
I have grown in confidence and I will now stand on a stage with a microphone in my hand and belt out a ballad. I will enter competitions and I will talk to leaders in british industry and not be phased.
Looking back on everything I have done, I know I have some great achievements, and I won’t ever say “but I haven’t done anything” ever again.
