World Beach Games, Doha

ANOC World Beach Games, Doha 2019

A rollercoaster of a day 😂
I genuinely surprised myself with my wakeboarding today. Everything just clicked and fell into place. Unfortunately it wasn’t quite enough to get through to finals. However, I can definitely walk away happy as I did the best that I could have imagined (if not better 😂). Congratulations to Italy’s Massi Piffaretti for taking the Gold! Details

Zeminar, Dublin 2019

Zeminar – Dublin 2019

Yesterday was a pretty savage day 🤘🏻. I had the opportunity to go up on stage and talk about how having a 2nd language (French) has been of benefit to me throughout my career.
It was also pretty crazy to share the stage with two incredible people and speakers – Paddy Hooligan and Kate Slattery and I definitely got some inspiration from them too!
It was my first time public speaking but it’s definitely something I’d like to do more of. Massive thanks to Languages Connect for having me 👊🏻😊
