Stephanie Davies says her new role as Global Messenger is "going to be an adventure", and one of the things she's most looking forward to is meeting lots of new people.
"That's something I'm really excited about, especially being the only one picked from Special Olympics Manawatu," says Stephanie, who resides in Palmerston North.
Stephanie's also looking forward to learning new skills at the national Athlete Leadership Programme workshops, especially how to be confident talking in public.
"I've never done public speaking before so that's going to be a big challenge for me in the future," she says.
A keen sportsperson, Stephanie joined Special Olympics Manawatu four years ago. She takes part in athletics during summer, basketball in winter, and swimming all year round with the Club.
