From being inspired by her PE teacher to joining the army and eventually conquering the world of athletics, she also discusses the impact of the military's ban on homosexuality and her eventual coming out in 2022. Dame Kelly also shares her strategies for maintaining her wellbeing, the importance of balance, and the newfound freedom she feels in being her true self. She offers invaluable advice to parents on encouraging their children, especially girls, to stay active and engaged in sports.
