On August 28th, I was asked to do an inspirational talk at the “Skate Like a Girl” camp at the Olympic Oval, Calgary. I had a whole hour and decided to tell my story on how I managed to overcome many obstacles in sport and with my MS and what lessons I learned along the way. It was such a rewarding experience and I look forward to learning from and improving my public speaking skills as I do more. I hope my message can be taken and applied to anyone’s life hurdles in some way or another….

-I was actually 18, not 17, when I first lost feeling from my chest to my toes.
-Named Laura not called Laura
