28th - Mental Health Fundraiser

Over the past few months, I went through the hardest time of my life.  It was challenging, uncertain, painful and terrifying. For those that know me well will understand my pain when I say that I didn't surf - for a while. Losing something that is such an integral part of who you are, is extremely debilitating. 

There are so many misconceptions about what anxiety is. Unfortunately, when it comes to explaining the concept of anxiety disorders to the uninitiated, it can confuse many well-meaning but ill-informed people.  The breadth and depth of mental illness affects so many people on so many levels. It is just not spoken about enough, but really needs to be. Your story really does matter.

I want to do everything I can to educate, raise awareness, and help others going through their own mental health challenges. For my 28th birthday (26th May), I'm raising money in aid of Beyond Blue Limited and every donation will help. 

Thank you to my family for getting me up in the mornings, friends for being around me and colleagues for never giving up on me and my aspiration to be the best lawyer I can. Your support has been unwavering.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me!
