    Stevie caught up with Martin Wolstencroft, CEO of Arc Inspirations for a Movember special. Stevie spoke about the mission of going beyond a stigma for men’s mental health and how players in rugby league used the term ‘head noise’ for mental health when it comes to the stress after a bad game or a video review where you know there’s going to be bullets flying your way.

Anastasia was born in Russia, lived in six different countries, and is a UK citizen.
