My new Hero

I would very much like to introduce you all to my new hero, Joanne O’Riordan. This young lady shows us that there truly are no limits to what we can do when determined.

She’s just 16 and yet she’s already addressed the United Nations’ International Telecommunications Union (ITU), caused a government to reverse policy, and has shown all the spirit and mettle of the best of heroines ever coupled with a marvelous wit. (I’ll even forgive her that she’s from Cork.)

I think that the trick to getting older is to make sure that the number of “goodbye”s we say never overwhelms the number of “hello”s. Here’s someone I hope to see more of as the years go by.
