Summer is in Year 12 at Our Lady of Mercy College (OLMC) Parramatta. Summer loves singing and performs regularly outside school in the community, in school performances, singing eisteddfods and has won various awards. Summer plays piano and is an accomplished Para Track & Field athlete with national and international competition experience. Summers sporting achievements include multiple national titles and winning gold for Australia at the Oceania Athletics Championships in 2019. In 2018 Summer travelled to Sant Cugat Spain, and competed at the CPRISA World Games where she broke the world record in Long Jump for her Cerebral Palsy classification. Summer is the current Australian record holder for the 400M and 1500m for T35 classification.
Summer has sung at many events over the last few years from weddings to charity and community events and fundraisers. She also does motivational speaking telling her story as an athlete and singer and how it helps overcome her conditions of Cerebral Palsy and being legally blind from a young age.
Summer is a very capable young lady that has demonstrated she does not need to be limited by disability. She will set her sights on something she wants to do, identify any barriers, and then she will find strategies and tools to navigate around the barriers. When she is pointed in the right direction, she is the one that intrinsically has the ambition, resilience, and determination to achieve anything she puts her mind to.
