Chris Durham shared how some of her experiences led to her searching for and finding answers.

Left with a damaged brain and body and crushed spirit and hope after a car accident, she searched for ways to get going again, and ways to help people with brain injury. She realised that, as a young child having spent time going on ‘thinking walks’ with her dad, these walks played a significant role in getting going again. This led to her searching for ways to empower students to think for themselves, through workshops at Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar School.

The experience of moving to Thailand in the late 1970s forced her to search for answers as to why the family of six were hit for six with drugs planted on them, children kidnapped and death threats. Was it all her fault? Epiphanies, answers and resolution showed that it is possible to find what we are looking for.
