I am incredibly privileged to have been given the opportunity to meet with Di Wilcox and in turn the opportunity to help the most important people in our society - the children. I hope that I am able to assist Di and the team at Magic Coat to continue Di’s passion and dreams in making a difference to as many children as possible as they truly are, our future.

"How one measures their success varies. I don’t believe success is measured by the amount of money in your bank or the title you hold, but rather the friends you keep and opportunities you are exposed to that can help others. When I was asked to be part of The Magic Coat team, I can truly say I consider that as a marker of success. To be asked to join The Magic Coat team is a privilege and a humbling opportunity to help so many young people around the world. Being part of a team focused on giving children tools to help them create resilience and emotional literacy is such a gift."

I am extremely grateful to be involved in a wonderful initiative."
