Welcome to Episode 10 of the Basha Effect Podcast, where I had the pleasure of interviewing Kate Fitzsimon. My name is Izhar Basha and I am your host.
Kate Fitzsimon is the Director of the Nicole Fitzsimon Foundation and an advocate for safety, responsibility and risk awareness in young people that travel overseas. Kate lost her sister, Nicole 6 years ago in a motorbike accident in Thailand, during which Nicole was not wearing a helmet (which is not against the law in Thailand). After suffering such devastating tragedy in her family from such a young age, Kate has been able to bounce back and spread awareness of life and responsibility. She is a role model to everyone that hears her story and her lessons.
During this episode, I explore some really deep topics with Kate about taking responsibility and holding yourself accountable to the possible consequences of your actions and how it can impact everyone around you. The key lesson that we flesh out is that we can view life as either “happening to us, or happening for us”. Resilience and perspective are extremely underrated and underappreciated characteristics of perpetual positivity.
Enjoy, and thank you for listening. I’m doing this for you.
