Todays guest on Join Up Dots is an amazing lady with such a huge heart, and the drive to tackle the kind of challenges that would make me quite simply climb back into bed.
Shortly she is going to start rowing herself around the British Isles on the Great British Viking Quest, which is a 3000 mile, single-handed circumnavigation of Great Britain in a purpose built ocean rowing boat, retracing the oar strokes of Viking seafarers, warriors, and conquerors.
The expedition brings ocean literacy, environmental, and STEM (Science, Technology, engineering, and Maths) education alive for students worldwide in the 21st century.
Funds raised will provide education to disadvantaged young people worldwide, helping every child 'go for gold' and to be successful in whatever they do in life.
As she says "I'm passionate about the world, scuba diving, human beings, and the experiences that life brings us. I love my job, and I feel very privileged to do what I am doing.
