Lewis had just finished Year 11 and started Year 12 in a new school. It was the worst time of his life.

I was lucky enough to win the major prize in the ‘My Red Letter’ competition in 2016.

I had just finished Year 11 & started Year 12. I had also just changed schools. It was the worst time in my life. My prize was sailing on Sydney Harbour thanks to Sailors with Disabilities.

I met David & Deb Pescud, who I am happy to say have become my friends. It was a very positive experience for me. David & Deb still call to check up on me from time to time.

I am now studying Fitness full time at TAFE NSW. I am an athlete and this is my passion. I have already completed my Cert III in Fitness & I am a qualified Gym Instructor. I am half way through my Cert IV to be a Personal Trainer. I intend to complete my Diploma in Fitness. I also have my own business called Running Squad. I coach both children & adults in middle/long distance running on both track and trails.

Never give up on your dreams and never let anyone tell you, you can’t achieve your goals.
