I admire the strength and courage of all young people faced with difficult situations in life. You are an inspiration to me and so many people around you, as you overcome challenges and come out of it stronger.
Presenting Saturday mornings has been a dream for a long time. And one day in September I am going to wake up very early and it will be a reality. I can't wait.
