A Drop in the Ocean

I decided to row the Atlantic because I wanted a better future.  I was a secretary in Brighton at the time, but I wanted to be more than just a touch typist with a theatre degree! I never knew that heading out to sea in a 23ft wooden rowing boat would ultimately save my relationship with my mother, and I certainly didn’t know how much it would change me. As I look to the future now, I realise that I can’t do everything and I certainly can’t save the world, but I can do something. In changing and challenging oneself I hope to influence and inspire others to do the same.
