Turning Point: A moment that changed my life

Well here’s a first for me — appearing on the BBC World Service!

A new show, The Response, was looking for people to record a 2-minute story using just their phone on a particular subject. The first topic: ‘Turning Point’, a moment that changed your life.

How could I refuse?

Not only was I used as the promo story during yesterday, I’m also the first story on the show. Very proud and slightly humbled!
