Ever since I can remember I loved going away for family holidays, packing the car, leaving the house and heading down to Rhosneigr in Wales for the whole summer. I think deep down I always knew I wanted to see more of the world. I knew I wanted to go travelling and experience more of life.

In the UK we’re making progress, and things regarding gender equality are moving forward, and moving in the right direction. It’s just moving so slowly, so very, very slowly.

The Tough Girl Podcast is all about motivating and inspiring women and girls. I interview women who've overcome physical or mental challenges that have pushed them to their limits.

I’m incredibly lucky to interview a real mixture of women, from elite athletes...
