About the speaker
Diagnosed with a life-limiting condition at 16, Tina ignored the doctors’ negative description of what the future had in store for a Friedreich’s ataxia patient and chose to live every day as it came. Expecting not to live beyond her 30s and unable to visualize a future eventually brought her to a bout of depression. Now she looks at this period of her life with gratitude, as it has transformed her life and mindset. Turning toward a healthy lifestyle, which included Naturopathy, Mindfulness and adapted sports, she is reaping the benefits. Tina’s way of living in the now has brought her to this stage, aged 33, she feels more energetic and positive than ever. Her aim is to inspire others, of all ages, to grab life with both hands. Tina will motivate you to take responsibility for making your life count. She will help you believe that your conditions don’t limit your life, your decisions do. It only takes one person to change your life: YOU.
