Hey folks!

Those who know me or follow my blogs may have seen me post this little gem around R U OK Day.


I highly recommend you give it a read. Not only will it hopefully help to paint a more rounded picture of me as an individual, but also helps to articulate to some what can be an invisible struggle for many young people within Australia and all over the globe.

WorldStrides, the company I work for, has been looking for an organisation to support which aligns with our overall mission of educating and empowering youth around the global. This organisation does exactly that, targeting some of the most vulnerable young people in Australia.

So... we had the choice of how far we wanted to walk. And rather than taking the cushy little 5km or even pushing ourselves to 15km, we have decided to take on a whopping 30km walk. Pump that into Google Maps and it will take you from the heart of my home town - Croydon (Waaasssuuup!) - right into the beating heart of Melbourne CBD. Google estimates 6.5 hours. Now while I do love Croydon, that is not where the journey will be starting, but that's just to paint a picture for you.

So folks! Every little bit helps. And if only 20 of my friends give $10, I'll have reached my goal.

Thanks team! Much love. x
