S3/E2: Syreeta Challinger on the healing power of creativity
Syreeta met her now husband Rob while they were both living in Hong Kong. Their life was hectic and moved at a pace, until, in September 2014, Rob suffered a brain haemorrhage and stroke while they were on holiday in Sydney. It turned both of their worlds upside down, and the life they had imagined for themselves exploded into dust. Yet somehow, out of this intense and traumatic experience, they created light, and Moments of Sense and Style, or MOSS, emerged. I asked Syreeta about her and Rob’s story, and how creativity has helped both of them to express themselves, heal and find a way forward out of the darkness. This is a really special conversation, and one that I know will stay with me for a while yet – I hope it does with you too.
