Real People Magazine: Skin in the game

Following living with a skin condition vitiligo since the age of 13 it was an honour to talk to Real People Magazine about how my accident helped me realise that my skin was far less of a concern than I once though.

Vitiligo is a challenging condition to live with, changing ones appearance on an ongoing basis, always changing and spreading. But with the trauma of my accident, it made me realise that the colour of me skin is nothing of importance compared to the battles life can throw as us. Real People Magazine helped me share my story.

My accident made me realise that life is too short!

I'm a bike loving, free spirited adventurer born and raised in England. Life took a turn in 2014. In a single moment life as I knew it was taken away by the momentary lapse in judgement of a red-light-jumping car while I was cycling. My recovery to fitness took a little over 7 years with 7 major surgeries and since that day I've made it my goal to make the most out of life. My biggest goal is to help encourage others to get up and get out there. It doesn’t matter what it is, but we all start somewhere and if I can do it, so can you! Let’s make the most of life, what we do have around us and have fun doing it.
