Am super excited to be a “This Girl Can” Victoria Ambassador.  This campaign by VicHealth encourages women to get active -“This Girl Can celebrates women who are all kinds of active. Women who are giving their all, or giving it a go, but not giving a damn!”  I get to share my story to support, encourage and inspire others.  For me that’s the amazing things roller derby has done for my health, both physical and mental and what I say to myself to get to training on those nights when its all too hard.  It’s such a genuine and inclusive message with women from all over Victoria, any shape or size, from expert athlete to not so much, encouraged to join this successful and positive global movement to inspire other women to get active too. Am super stoked to be a part of it!!  (This message resonates so much, I’m overlooking the Star Wars decor, babbling baby and healing coldsores in my video 😛 ).

To connect with the This Girl Can Victoria community, checkout:

If you’ve got a story to share visit thisgirlcan.com.au and you could be selected for the campaign launching in early 2018.

So get out, get active, love your body and find the activity you enjoy. Make friends, get fit, have fun and be fierce!
