Guest : Michaylah Petersen Michaylah Petersen is never without her longboard. These wheels are her freedom. At the age of 15, Petersen was kicked out of home. Her family refused to accept that she was gay. For two days, Petersen lived on the streets. With nowhere to go, she ended up in a care home, severely depressed. It’s been a long journey to self-acceptance. In the course of getting her life on board, she’s enabling others to get back up. She first saw the impact of sport while coaching surfing at Waves for Change, a Laureus Sport for Good programme. Liberated by the adrenaline rush, Petersen realised she could take it further – with longboarding. Now, Petersen teaches girls in Lavender Hill how to carve, giving them the opportunity to move forward and express themselves.
