Join Kaiser Kitchens and Paralympian Jessica Smith in the second event of the Around the Kitchen Table speaker series.
Jessica Smith is an Australian Paralympic Swimmer, public speaker, children’s author, and the Chief Operating Officer at ‘TOUCH Dubai’ – an inclusive talent agency and disability consultancy which aims to educate society about the importance of inclusion, both from a professional and a social model.
Jessica has an incredible story of triumphs and tribulations. Born missing her left arm, then suffering an horrific accident when she was a toddler where she sustained burns to 15% of her body, she defied odds and went on to represent her country in the sport of swimming for seven years, culminating in her selection onto the Australian Paralympic team in 2004. Sport gave Jessica ambition and focus while she tried to confront societal obstacles around body image and disability acceptance. She was able to eventually break
free from personal struggles with depression and eating disorders in her 20’s.
Since retiring from her international swimming career, Jessica has gone on to become an internationally recognised advocate for positive
body image, diversity & inclusion, and disability awareness.
Join this session to learn about awe-inspiring resilience through Jessica Smith’s story. Bites and beverages will be served, and the first 25 attendees will receive a Kaiser Kitchens goodie bag.
