I’m not usually one to read the sports pages but sitting on the train this morning I flicked through the Metro and saw the excellent feature on Khadijah Mellah who won a charity race yesterday at Glorious Goodwood!
The 18 year old learnt to ride at a local stable in Brixton but only sat on a race horse two months ago.
Breaking all barriers, perceptions and assumptions, Khadijah said in the report ‘I definitely want to keep going – I’ve loved every second. It’s been a whirlwind……Ambitious women can make it – that is what I want to represent’.
I think she’s achieved the status of showing every human being they can achieve want they want with self-belief, determination and encouragement.
Now, shouldn’t this have been front page news?
