Danusia Francis heads to Harvard!
Refresh client Danusia Francis was invited to be a speaker on the Athlete Panel at the annual Women in Power Conference (2023) held at Harvard University. Danusia was invited by Flame Bearers, which is the first global storytelling platform, illuminating the unsung stories of resilient Women Olympians & Paralympians.
Danusia featured as a guest on their podcast for Season 1, alongside Rukhsar Habibzai (Afghan Cyclist for Team Twenty24 and Nobel Peace Prize Nominee), Anastasia Pagonis (American Paralympic Swimmer, 2x Paralympic medallist) and Jenny Sichel (Paralympic Silver Medalist and Coach; Operations Director at National Council of Independent Living).
They spoke about resilience, determination and chasing your dreams. All of the panellists have completely different stories but are all great examples of never giving up and are also paving the way for other athletes.
Danusia had an incredible time and came away feeling inspired by her fellow panellists and can’t wait to see what else they achieve in sport and life.
