I've been a chef, a banker, a government official; I'm a Saints tragic, a cricket lover, a Beatles fan; I'm a dad, a family man and a friend to many. That's who I am.
I also have a story to tell. Sharing stories makes humans more connected. For people like me who have been through significant challenges, sharing stories can also inspire resilience and ampathy.
What I can offer
A lot of us have done it tough over the past few years. By sharing the story of my challenges, I can remind people that a positive mindset and a focus on the small issues in front of us rather than panicking about the big picture, can see us through the toughest of times.
I've been through a lot, but I'm smiling and hopeful.
