Oh Yes! This competition and what I created is a BIG culmination of releasing so much pain, opening my heart to my new life and baring my soul on stage for all to see.
Those watching saw the finished product but not what it took to get there. This was not just about learning to live with my foot injury but also in March last year, a week before my first pole competition, I tore cartilage in my ribs which meant 9 months off pole...
During that time I escaped to India for 3 months. It changed my life. I lived and loved with family in Brisbane and hung out with the gay faeries in Nimbin. When I returned to Melbourne, I finally found a fantastic physio and got myself back to Comp standard. I even wore the same costume I had designed for the first time.
