“Turn your face toward the sun and the shadows will fall behind you.”
Students of Westminster Academy Islamabad recently had the amazing opportunity to meet and listen to the very inspirational story of Luke Grenfell-Shaw, a young man from Bristol, United Kingdom.
Luke, 27, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, at stage 4, in 2018. At that point in time, he decided that his illness was not going to keep him from living his life to the fullest.
He is now on a tandem bike ride from Bristol, UK to Beijing, China with a mission to raise funds for five charities that support young people living with cancer.
While in conversation with the students of Westminster, Luke emphasized time and again, through his own example, the importance of fulfilling one’s dreams, not waiting for a tomorrow as there might not be any and to always have courage even when faced with the biggest challenges in life.
We wish Luke all the best with his journey and the accomplishment of his goals!
