Chances are, her name’s familiar to you… and that’s because Turia became a household name when, at 24, her life was turned upside down when she became trapped in a grass fire while competing in a 100km ultramarathon.
And not only did she manage to SURVIVE the severe burns to 65% of her body… she’s also gone on to absolutely THRIVE in an ultimate story of triumph!
Indeed, Turia has well and truly beaten the odds and is inspiring others all over the country to never lose sight of their goals, dreams or who they are with her 7-step coaching course, School of Champions – a guide to getting unstuck, ditching your excuses, overcoming all kinds of barriers and making things happen. Plus, she’s gone on to deliver some truly brilliant speeches across the globe and is the author of several books, including the newly released The Good Selfie as well as Unmasked and Everything to Live For.
On top of that, she’s also an ambassador for Interplast Australia & New Zealand and to date, has helped raise almost $1 million dollars in donations and $3 million dollars in awareness. Her humanitarian doesn’t stop there, Turia has also been busy working on Haapii, a foundation with the overall aim of providing kids in developing countries with the best educational resources possible!
