As a Keynote speaker, I share stories to inspire life-changing transformations

Our community has raised over $1,000,000 for charity through Paddle Across the Bay.

In 2012, tragedy struck when I lost my mother to cancer shortly after I migrated to Australia. Having to say goodbye remotely and absolutely devastated, I sought refuge in the ocean, taking up kite surfing as a way to channel my grief. Instead of succumbing to the pain, I harnessed it into a powerful force for good and launched ‘Paddle Across the Bay’, a community that raises funds for cancer research and mental health. To date, it has engaged over 2500 participants and raised nearly a million dollars for Cancer Council Victoria and Lifeline.
