Freya: “On my mum’s birthday this year, 29.11.2016, I decided I needed to do something in memory of my wonderful, funny, intelligent mother, who passed away January 2016. I know there was a lot in life she didn’t get a chance to do, but there was so much she did do- she travelled to so many countries, saw so much of the world, played beautiful music in orchestras for people across the globe, and after she died I saw a photo of her doing a skydive, which i’d never known she had done.

I realised there was a lot of wonder and adventure inside my mum that I didn’t get the chance to see much of, and that maybe she didn’t get to use as much as she should have. I also realised that there is a lot of my own potential I haven’t yet realised. At the moment, I work, come home, eat, sleep, repeat. I end up working on automatic, and I don’t want to spend my life like that. Taking on this challenge- 365 scary things in 365 days- should not only help me jumpstart my days, but remember my mum in the best way possible. ”
