Motivational Talk at "Skate Like a Girl"

04/09/2010 11:26

On August 28th, I was asked to do an inspirational talk at the "Skate Like a Girl" camp at the Olympic Oval, Calgary.  I had a whole hour and decided to tell my story on how  I managed to overcome many obstacles in sport and with my MS and what lessons I learned along the way. It was such a rewarding experience and I look forward to learning from and improving my public speaking skills as I do more.  I  hope my message can be taken and applied to anyone's life hurdles in some way or another....

The following video is part 1 of 6. I will post a new video each week as the presentation is quite long.
