Standing In My Own Shoes
Standing In My Own Shoes

What is ‘success’?

Some say that wealth, popularity and fame equal success. Others say the unconditional love of family and friends is the only kind of success they need.

In Standing In My Own Shoes, 21 Kiwi Olympians and Paralympians have written letters to young people, sharing what they learned about ‘success’ from their experiences in Tokyo. Some of the athletes have recorded themselves speaking the letters too.

There are letters from athletes like Lisa Carrington, Hamish Bond and Lydia Ko.

Each letter has been illustrated by a well-known Kiwi illustrator. Some of the artists involved are Gavin Bishop, Ruth Paul and Ant Sang.
