Andrea…

Who am I?

Ok so I built a house… what next?

For the last five years I have been focused on the challenge of designing, funding and constructing my forever home. The journey has been incredibly challenging with numerous serious issues coming forward through the process which had taken me out of my comfort zone.

I have learned how incredibly resilient I am, that I am adaptable, pragmatic, resourceful and that, even in the darkest moment, I will keep moving forward.

Why do I want to row the Atlantic?

It has shifted my awareness of who I am and I have evolved. So why row the Atlantic? I feel I have pushed myself mentally and emotionally to my limits but neglected the physical. My body is amazing and I want to give it the opportunity to shine and fulfil the physical role it is designed for in the moment.

For me, the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge will push me and give me the opportunity to build a team and a community that will work together for the greater good of the whole. We will learn together, fail together, laugh and cry together and that’s probably before we even reach la Gomera!

As a bonus, our actions will challenge and inspire other girls and women to push past their limits and grow. To hopefully gain an insight in to community and collaboration.

I genuinely believe this will prove to be a demanding, changing and ultimately rewarding pursuit.

Right now I know exactly where I am.

I’m in charge, I’ll decide…

I did this alone so image what kind of journey it could be through collaboration with other amazing humans.
