All of our staff & students were inspired to hear Trish’s story. She presented it with facts and humour.  You can see that she had to overcome many obstacles, and she did overcome them with such strength, and in fact every day she still needs to overcome obstacles as she goes through life in constant pain.

I was left feeling touched by her story and in awe of her inner strength.

Thank you Trish for educating our students in so many areas, educational as well as personal.

Your story stayed with us all for a long time.
