Message - Life is always about decisions not conditions Born with Klippel Feil Syndrome, the abnormal fusion of two vertebrae in the neck, I was bullied throughout high school. Students, teachers and sometimes even the public would openly ridicule me. Angry, bitter and hurt, I blamed the world for my demise. Filtering through relationships and jobs that were toxic, using my past as an excuse not to thrive. After a long journey of personal development, I realised that I had the power to control my life and own my different. Now I share my story with others to inspire them to take control of their lives, overcome their demons and live an extraordinary live. My talks are fun and full of key takeaways to implement.
