THE Hawkesbury’s Sandy Freeman attended a lunch with PricewaterhouseCoopers executives on November 30, where she talked about her life competing in sport.

Freeman has long competed as a swimmer, and even broke world records at the Special Olympics World Games and Freeman spoke to the employees of the company at the lunch and the impact it has had on her life.

The event took place on the eve of December 1’s International Day of People With a Disability.

“Special Olympics Australia has made me confident in myself and most of my friends are from Special Olympics,” Freeman said.

“It makes me feel like I am good at something and my swimming gives me a chance to show people that I am an athlete.”

Her mother Carol said swimming had been such a positive thing in her daughter’s life.

“Since being involved with Special Olympics Australia, Sandy has blossomed, not only as a swimmer but also as a young woman,” she said.
