Todays guest joining on the show is a lady who i be honest I am a huge fan of her work. She is a singer, musician, songwriter, actress and has one the bubbliest characters it has been delight to come into contact with, whilst her album "Something I Couldn't Say" has been a constant in the Join Up dots headquarters for the last month or so. Now if you think that this is a story of a lady with talent and the world supporting her to achieve her aims then think again. This is story of a talent shining brighter due to the knocks and obstacles she has been required to overcome. Whilst pursuing her recording and acting career, she lost most of her vision at age 23, through type 1 Diabetes, as a result of a common diabetic eating disorder (EDMT1) from her late teens. After going through laser treatment and many operations and rehabilitating herself after having lost everything (job, driving licence, independence), unstoppable and unperturbed by obstacles and negative attitudes, she continued pursuing her career. The experience simply made her more determined to follow her own path and become a success, and i have no doubt that her future is a very bright one indeed. So does she look back at her teenage decisions with a "What the hell was I doing" or "c'est la vie" it wont stop me getting what i want? And the big question....where is Waverley Bridge, and why does it sound so exotic to this humbler podcaster? Well let's find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Sarah Caltieri Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Sarah Caltieri such as: Sarah reveals how due to her eye issues the world has become in many ways more beautiful than before. A lovely way of thinking. Why she feels telling people that she had a rough time or a bad day is a cathartic thing to do, even though it surprises so many people that she does it. Why she feels strongly that her music and platform has to be accessible to all forms of life, no matter what their disabilities and lastly…. How it was so difficult to find the true authenticity in her voice due to her previous stage training....get more northern they cried and fortunately she listened.
