2016 Kaleen Primary

Thank you so much for your time and presentation last Friday – student and staff feedback was overwhelmingly positive. They loved seeing your medals and sharing in your story of grit and perseverance. It was a great alignment to help our students understand different perspectives and to our social and emotional focus this semester about courage and saying “I can”. Laurie Campbell, Principal


2016 Ngunnawal Primary

Thank you so much for visiting 2SL on Friday. I think that I was just as excited as the students to meet you and to hear your story. We will definitely be following up your visit with an activity about students working out what their dream is so that they can work towards achieving it. It was a great privilege to meet a Paralympic champion. Laurie Imhoff


Hawker College SLG

Lindy Hou is a genuine hero and inspiration. Lindy was the keynote speaker for Hawker College’s 'TEDDY Talks’, setting the tone for the rest of a successful event. Engaging an audience of college students and members of the wider community, Lindy’s presentation was funny, insightful and motivational. Highlights included Lindy’s recreation of the moment she won gold at the Athen’s Paralympics and encouraging audience members to shake their neighbour’s hand with their eye’s closed. At the end of a 45 minute presentation, Lindy welcomed questions from the floor; which included a beautiful discourse with Ngunnawal women, Aunty Violet Sherida, where she invited Lindy to share her motivational speech at an event to Indigenous youth. The beauty of Lindy's presentation is that it addresses and engages all people, retrospective of age or life experience. Absolutely would have Lindy speak again. Thank you!
