Endorsements

Students were amazed to hear she was the 1st female footy player to kick 100 goals, a few questions were asked about her from the students and they enjoyed her footy clinic. Abbey loved the kids and even sat with them on the courts and engaged.

Abbey was great, the people in attendance really appreciated her insights and she matched our expectations perfectly. Not only was her presentation great, but she also interacted with our young MC incredibly and they felt really comfortable with her.
