There was a really interesting discussion at the end of the Women in Adventure Expo. The topic was; women in the media and women struggling to get sponsorship from companies. There was lots of conversations around this subject and it could have easily turned into a parade of stories of all the things that hadn’t happened, and how hard done by we all are. How it’s just not fair and things need to chang...

As a college student, typically you seldom get to actually physically experience what you’re learning. About two weeks into my creative media course I was handed a piece of paper and told to write down my contact details and some things I enjoy doing or want to pursue in the future, this was all in aid of getting a suitable placement for work expeirence.

 

I won’t lie, I didn’t have a lot of hope....

I’ve been looking at The Tough Girl Podcast to see how I can improve it and make it better for you, the listeners!!

But at the moment I don't have the capacity to make that commitment...yet!! 

 

So instead, what I’ve decide...

During this podcast Amy talks all about her love of fitness and how she came to take up the sport of powerlifting. To put this in context, Amy had never done any weight training before and had never even picked up a dumbbell! Five months later she had entered her first powerlifting competition.

But in the end it was Tough Girl Challenges, that I just kept on coming back to. It just resonated with me and still does. 

 

I’ve always been a big believer in doing challenges and pushing mysel...
