In-Depth With Paralympian Jessica Smith – Butterfly: Let’s Talk Season 2, Episode 4
As a kid living with a disability, Jessica wanted to win gold for her country from the moment she realised she could beat all the able-bodied swimmers at her school. It became more than a dream. Swimming was her life’s work and her identity. In 2004 Jessica went to the Athens Games as a favourite, only to have her Olympic Dreams shattered when her health, both mental and physical, failed her.
In this episode of Butterfly’s Let’s Talk In Depth, Jessica opens up about her body image issues and an eating disorder, including the story of her road to recovery.
