“Knowing that I’m making a difference to them… to their future – a real difference.”

“It doesn’t matter how busy my life gets, there will always be time for my physie girls. Always!”

“I just think about what physie has given me – all the skills and confidence and friendship – and I want to pass that on… and I want them to grow up and pass it on too.”
