Sophie Morgan Happy Place

    • Personal Journals

At 18 years old, Sophie Morgan was in a car crash, and was instantly paralysed from the chest down. Eighteen years on, she is now one of the only TV presenter’s in the world with a physical disability. She’s also an artist and an award-winning disability advocate. Sophie speaks passionately about how adversity influences her life to be filled with more gratitude.
In this chat with Fearne, Sophie talks about how, after her injury, she felt as paralysed by fear as she was by her physical body, but as she adapted to her body, and the inaccessible world around her, she found ways to embrace her situation, to throw herself into physical challenges and test the limits of her ability, so that ultimately she became more alive, more purposefully and more fulfilled in life. She and Fearne also share an admiration for Mexican painting, the icon, Frida Kahlo, and they chat about how art can bring us all back to life.
Sophie’s first book, a powerful and remarkable memoir, that Fearne said “will change your perspective on life,” called ‘Driving Forwards’ will be available to buy in hardback, e-book, and as an audiobook from March 17th.
