TELL ME I CAN'T AND I WILL!
"YOU SHOULD BE HIDDEN BEHIND A DESK SOMEWHERE"
Meet Angie Sandow - founder of JUSTRIDIN.
Angie decided to share her story as an Inspirational Speaker after she realized that playing guitar using a prosthetic motivated others to smash through their own obstacles. Always encouraged to reach for the stars, Angie believes that anything is possible and that no-one should be judged based on their appearance.
As a result of being born with various birth defects, the most noticeable of which is the limb difference to her right arm and hand, Angie was often seen as "different" .
Angie shares her experiences of how she navigated through challenging situations such as;
- being laughed at , taunted and excluded,
- being bullied and becoming a bully,
- coping with body image issues,
- finding employment,
- being diagnosed with breast cancer,
- riding a motorcycle
Angie founded JUSTRIDIN to share her tales of determination which she does with a sense of humour and conviction. Angie's speaking engagements are like no other - similar to her gigs with her AC/DC Tribute band BARE RUMP and her classic rock band LEFTY AND THE GOONS, she is full of energy and passion which will inspire you to realize that anything is possible. She may even play a few riffs on her guitar or show you her modified motorcycle!
Angie will customize her presentation based on the needs of your audience and event.
We are all JUST RIDIN through life!!
