Fran Whitaker believes in doing all she can to make a difference. It’s an attitude that fired her to incredible success as a swimmer. She won six Paralympic medals, including Silver at Beijing 2008, and five World Championship Golds in a career spanning over ten years. Her drive to make a positive change also helped her to overcome the limiting expectations placed on her at school and graduate from university with a First Class degree.
Living with cerebral palsy, Fran has a unique perspective on success and self improvement. She believes that nothing worth having comes easy and that every step towards a goal is a success in itself. Learning from mistakes is all part of the process.
With this ethos and strength of character, Fran and TAP have a chance to help others achieve goals that society deems impossible.
