As a child growing up in country Queensland, shedreamed of a big life.

Working as a foreign correspondent gave her that, but italso meant confronting the worst that humanity can bring.

Three decades asa journalist witnessing tragedy had a cost. And an ever-escalating fear offlying threatened to rob her of her ability to work at all. For that young girl from small-town Kilkivan, who had to push herself tokeep going, push herself to conquer fear, push herself to tell important stories,finally came the realisation that sometimes all we really need is what wealready have. And she shows us that we are all stronger and more resilientthan we give ourselves credit for if we just dare to let ourselves fly.
