A past courageous act in the future

Living in Moscow in the late 1990s I had to be courageous. I had to learn a new language, speak it and make myself understood.

Netball taught me well...

A number of you will know that I played netball from a very early age (and for a long time); you may recall that I wrote a blog about What netball has taught me. I was reminded of another lesson last week, learnt from most likely my very first day on court … more about that later.
