Last Friday I caught up with Samuel Johnson from Love Your Sister while he’s spending some time in Melbourne.
You may remember my interview with him earlier in the year before he set off on an epic unicycle ride around Australia, raising money for and awareness of breast cancer. That is 15,000 km and a $1 Million goal. Samuel’s sister Connie is dying from breast cancer and Samuel’s unicycle trip and activism is one of her wishes.
Samuel has the most incredible spirit, generosity and determination – his commitment to Connie’s wish is so admirable.
I’ve been following his trip on social media and have been in awe at the photography documenting the places he’s been to, and the generosity of Australians he’s met. I asked him a little about his journey (it’s six months since he departed from Federation Square) and what more we can do to help. (Apologies for the sound towards the end – it’s been extremely windy in Melbourne and it was very blustery on the day we filmed this interview.)
Thanks for your time doing this interview, Samuel, and to Emma from Love Your Sister for making it happen!
