Beautiful girls before the ballLayne and I on stage at the gala ball.Having a laugh. I think this was when I told her that I am a little too into fashion despite this appearance activism stuff!You can view all the photos (taken by Carol Gibbons) in the Aim for the Stars gallery. You can also view the videos of surfing and the ball.
I have such beautiful memories of my time in Sydney with the Aim for the Stars grant recipients, Layne and Megan, and am forever grateful for their support.
I read Layne's biography over the weekend just gone, and after getting a deeper insight into her life, I really admire her drive and perserverance, rising above the adversities she's experienced. She knew what she wanted to achieve, visualised it, worked hard and achieved it. What a woman!
