I offer a variety of student presentations and workshops to Universities.
The sessions are designed to be an hour in duration, but there is great flexibility to suit the needs of individual Universities.
I share my journey from being a 9 year old girl with a big dream, to realising it 11 years later. I discuss the rollercoaster of a journey I have had, from the typical set backs of an athlete, to the turbulence of living with mental illness.
This session focuses on my journey, and most importantly, the lessons I have learnt along the way that students can apply to their lives.
The session helps develop aspirations, goal-setting, problem solving, and general understanding of mental (ill) health.
My Journey In Short
This 15 – 30 minute presentation is ideal for achievement events.

Anxiety is a healthy emotion that everyone feels from time to time – it is necessary to help us survive.
But, it can become out of hand. It can be difficult to identify if an individuals anxiety is healthy, or needs some support. This presentation helps students understand.
I use personal experience to explain how anxiety feels and how it can impact everyday life. Advice is also offered to deal with anxiety.
Includes discussion on panic attacks – why they happen, what they feel like, and how students can help themselves or someone else.
Understanding Low Mood
We all experience low mood from time to time. It is not realistic to aim for permanent happiness. But, for some, low mood can be prolonged, intense, and difficult to lift.
I use personal experience to discuss how depression feels, how it can impact everyday life, as well as mechanisms that may boost mood.
Sometimes associated with low mood is self-harming behaviours and suicidal thoughts. I am honest in my struggles, aiming to encourage openness on the topic and ensure people know it is ok to talk.
