Description

The utterly inspirational story behind one of our country's most superb
journalists. To have played even the tiniest of roles in helping to ignite Lisa's
early fire for journalism gives me more joy than she will ever know.
- LISA WILKINSON

Lisa Millar has spent her whole life showing up, getting things done and
making things happen. As a child growing up in country Queensland, she
dreamed of a big life. Working as a foreign correspondent gave her that, but it
also meant confronting the worst that humanity can bring. Three decades as
a journalist witnessing tragedy had a cost. And an ever-escalating fear of
flying threatened to rob her of her ability to work at all.

For that young girl from small-town Kilkivan, who had to push herself to
keep going, push herself to conquer fear, push herself to tell important stories,
finally came the realisation that sometimes all we really need is what we
already have. And she shows us that we are all stronger and more resilient
than we give ourselves credit for if we just dare to let ourselves fly.
