Am I Excited? Yes! Terrified? Yes! Grateful? Very!
I'm thrilled and proud to share that Brave Enough - A Journey Home to Joy has a trailer and a date for the premiere screening in February! Together, Frit Sarita Tam of Passion Fruit Pictures and I are inching close to sharing this creative labour of love with the world.

You can watch the trailer here:
Excited, Terrified and Grateful are words I used a lot in both the run up to launching the challenge and throughout my time on the canals, as well as now as we move closer to sharing the film with the world.
You can read more about how Frit and I came to meet by chance in 2018, her leap of faith asking to join me on the canals to film the coast to coast adventure and the friendship that we cherish as a result.
My hope is that by sharing the challenges of my story it will help other women rediscover their joy, put their dreams, however big or small, on the priority list and realise that they are brave enough to fulfil them. One tiny step at a time.
Because you are never too old to dream a new dream and it is never too late to make a difference.

Our plan to have pop up festivals to share Brave Enough have of course been put on hold with Covid restrictions. Instead we will be hosting screenings online with limited ticket numbers and an opportunity for an exclusive Q & A with both myself and Frit, the filmmaker. You will have the chance to ask questions about the challenge, making an adventure film and creating your own adventure.
There will also be the chance to win prizes in an online competition.
