Hannah Poppy Pawsey

For 31-year-old Poppy Pawsey, the 2018 Invictus Games is about going one step further than before and making constant improvements. “For me, Invictus Games is all about developing and pushing yourself to achieve goals that you never thought possible. Throughout the Invictus Games 2017 this is what I did - and I achieved more than I ever imagined. “ The former Royal Marines musician, from Exmouth, hopes that the 2018 Invictus Games will help her to lead and guide others on their recovery journey, and inspire them to feel part of something great. “This year is all about a journey to being a fitter, better, stronger Poppy. Someone who can inspire others to believe that they too can achieve their dreams. I have got my strength and smile back and now I want to help others who are in the same position I was in last year. This is the next stage of my journey and it is extremely exciting and positive.”
