Meet the Team
Frederika Roberts and Elizabeth Wright are experienced school speakers with amazing stories to share.
Their life experiences will bring the 'Resilience, Wellbeing, Success' concepts and ideas to life for your pupils.
Frederika knows a thing or two about happiness and resilience. Between them, her daughters have had two cardiac arrests, three open heart surgeries and countless hospital stays, both planned and unplanned, over the years.
In her professional life, she has been a secondary school teacher, has taught English and Italian to adults and spent 12 years working in recruitment. She has set up, run and closed small businesses.
She believes in savouring every morsel life has to offer, making the most of the good times and using simple strategies to bounce back and overcome challenges, big and small.
Born with congenital limb deficiency, Elizabeth’s life prospects seemed bleak, but with parents who decided to raise her to be as independent as possible, Elizabeth grew up with a rock solid self-belief and positive attitude to go on and achieve the seemingly impossible.
At the age of 13 she set the massive goal to swim at the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games. 3 years later, she competed at her first Paralympic Games in Atlanta, USA, as a member of the Australian National Swim team.
During her Paralympic career, Elizabeth held world records for Butterfly, won countless races, and won three Paralympic Medals: One silver and two bronze.
