“Rowing this ocean reveals someone I didn’t know existed. I am one of a handful of people who see the sky and the ocean from where we are. I count myself blessed beyond measure.” -Julia Immonen

What would you do with your talents if you knew it could make a difference in the world? For Julia Immonen, an athlete and Sky Sports newscaster, the thing she was most passionate about changing was the injustice of modern-day slavery. She decided to use what she was good at - sports - to raise awareness about human trafficking, and embarked on the enormous challenge of rowing across the Atlantic Ocean.
