Todays guest on Join Up Dots is an amazing lady with such a huge heart, and the drive to tackle the kind of challenges that would make me quite simply climb back into bed.
Shortly she is going to start rowing herself around the British Isles on the Great British Viking Quest, which is a 3000 mile, single-handed circumnavigation of Great Britain in a purpose built ocean rowing boat, retracing the oar strokes of Viking seafarers, warriors, and conquerors.
The expedition brings ocean literacy, environmental, and STEM (Science, Technology, engineering, and Maths) education alive for students worldwide in the 21st century.
Funds raised will provide education to disadvantaged young people worldwide, helping every child ‘go for gold’ and to be successful in whatever they do in life.
As she says “I’m passionate about the world, scuba diving, human beings, and the experiences that life brings us. I love my job, and I feel very privileged to do what I am doing.
So how has a lady that spent two years walking peoples dogs around the English Countryside, ended up following in the watery path of the United Kingdoms Norwegian invaders?
And does she feel that is just the start to more and more increasingly challenges that she can see on the horizon?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the inspirational Sarah Weldon
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How she always thought that she was a confident person until she spent time with children in Georgia, and realised that was truly living within her comfort levels.
How when she was a small child she would play with the only poisonous snake in the United Kingdom and think it was great fun to do so.
How she works literally twenty hours a day, seven days a week, and can’t stop talking about it with her friends, such is her passion for the task.
How we should ignore the people that want to know the financial details of a project and grasp hold of the people that simply believe in our dream.
How she has needed to pile on the pounds to be able to undertake this gruelling task, and then was required to go to an event with probably the skinniest woman in the world..V.Beckham
