I believe I was born on a lucky and brilliant day because I’m a naturally happy and very positive person, however, on that day I also believe someone said, let’s have a laugh and remove the part of the brain that says, “you mustn’t do that, it’s impossible”…
From a young age I was leaping from trees and swinging out of the barn on the farm I grew up on. Fear didn’t make an appearance in my life until I was three years old and I was attacked by a cockerel, I’ve been scared of birds ever since. That aside, I’ve always had an insatiable spirit for adventure.
At the end of March 2011 I am going to Nepal. I’m going to be co-leading an expedition to climb Mount Everest. At 8,848m it is the highest mountain in the world. Not only will I be attempting to summit the peak I will also be taking my paraglider with the intention of flying from the summit…
I am aiming to become the first woman in the world to solo pilot a paraglider from the top of Mt Everest.
Now why on earth would I want to do that??... There are a couple of answers; a short one and a long one.
