Podium presentation day for all eight artists and athletes. Didn’t realise how daunting it would be presenting my work and ideas to other artists!
I met my athlete, Anne Wafula-Strike. Anne is a wheelchair racer, 100 metre, 200 metre, 400 metre and 800 metre, she also does long distance to create awareness.
Anne lives and trains in Harlow in Essex, she is currently ranked just outside the top 10 in the world in the 100 metres, 200 metres and 400 metres. She was just 0.1 of a second out of selection of the Beijing Paralympics in the 100 metres!
She is a full time athlete and an inspirational speaker and was an English teacher in Kenya prior to coming to England.
Now we are talking daunting! I feel this will be a journey two people are about to take…..
