Martine Wright MBE , 7/7’s most injured survivor lost both legs in the Circle line bombing during the 2005 terrorist attacks on the London underground, yet she considers herself a lucky woman with a whole new life of opportunities.

Martine Wright MBE  has since rebuilt her life, skydived, learned to fly,  become a wife, mother, captain of the British Paralympic Sitting volleyball team, Ambassador, Patron,  an inspirational and motivational speaker and much more.

On 6 July 2005 Martine Wright MBE and work friends gathered to watch the announcement of the host city for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games. The next morning, having overslept, Martine MBE caught the Circle line and sat just three feet away from suicide bomber Shehzad Tanweer. The worst injured, and consequently last rescued survivor of the 7/7 bombings, Martine MBE was trapped for over an hour having lost 80% of her blood supply as well as both legs above the knees. There followed a painful year of rehabilitation including learning to walk again on prosthetics.

Individual-Speakers-Quote

Martine Wright MBE was not only a total joy to meet and be around but one of the best motivational speakers we have had on the line-up at our annual festival of learning. She is down to earth, humorous, inspiring, humbling…the list goes on. I challenge anyone to leave the room after having heard Martine speak and not feel inspired to go and follow their dreams and achieve what they may have thought previously was the impossible.

Thank you so much for setting up this talk, fantastic and Martine is truly inspirational. Spent half of this talk in tears, but laughing as well. It’s her mindset around seeing this as the life she was always meant to have rather than ‘mourning’ for the life that might have been that really strikes me about her.
