A bit about yourself:

I’m a serial entrepreneur. I’ve started three businesses in the last 5 years, with most notable being UPmovement. I live for Social Entrepreneurship, and love that I get to bring purpose and fulfilment to my life and others every single day! I graduated with a Masters in Prosthetics and Orthotics in 2017, and have vowed to help the amputee crisis in the developing and war-torn world.

What’s your ‘why’?

I get to get out of bed every single day and go wherever I want. I get to run, hop, skip and jump. There are millions out there that don’t get that freedom.

We use Sawyer Filters, a quick, easy, simple yet effective filtration system which can provide water for families without access.
