Cornelia Oosthuizen is an extraordinary human being with an incredible story of resilience, determination and positivity.

Her speech is informed, full of insight and acts as a true inspiration for others, a victory for resilience and determination over adversity and setbacks.

Beset with family challenges from a young age, she has used her experiences of life to build an impressive career in the Army rising to the rank of Major, before sustaining a life changing trauma – not on the field of conflict, but on a tennis court whilst representing the forces.

Her injuries were such that she has faced the heart wrenching choice and decision to have her leg amputated in order to overcome the chronic pain disorder that she has suffered since early 2015.

Never one to be accept defeat, Cornelia was selected for the GB team in the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto, winning a bronze medal in her preferred sport of tennis. She also achieved the unthinkable feat of winning the gold medal in golf just four months after taking up the sport – a true case of accelerated learning, and application of a positive mindset.
