About the Author: Sarah Rose (Author)

A three-time Paralympian swimmer and medal-winner, Sarah Rose represented Australia at multiple Paralympics, World Championships and World Cups. Since retiring from swimming in 2014, she has become a prominent spokesperson on disability, diversity, women’s issues and inclusion and has had extensive experience talking in schools. Sarah also hosts A Very Rosie Podcast, where she talks to inspirational guests who have chased their dreams.

Sarah is short statured with a mighty big heart and spirit. She wants her daughter, Willow, and son, Freddie, to grow up in a world where people with a disability like their mum are seen in the media and part of the broader conversation in Australian life.

Sarah has served on Paralympics Australia’s Athlete Commission since its inception. She talks to corporations about the importance of representation in the workforce and is a regular guest on ABC News, ABC Weekend Breakfast and The Drum. More recently, she’s shared her voice on Play School, singing in a trio with Jemima and Humpty (sincere apologies in advance to all the parents out there).
