Anoushé Husain is a paraclimber who we’ve been planning to interview for sometime now, but as will become apparent when you listen to this video-podcast, we kept getting put back by setbacks! 2020 was an extremely tough year for most of the world and even more so for Anoushé. As well as getting through the pandemic and surviving the difficulties of living on her own without care support, she has faced some huge setbacks in her health again this year.

Born missing her right arm below the elbow, Anoushé has survived cancer, learnt to live (and climb well) with EDS all whilst being an incredible advocate for paraclimbers, diversity, and equality. Not only is she a huge force for good, but she also has some amazing insights and experiences to share with others in how she deals with setbacks, her attitude around resilience and what it means to keep pushing on, no matter what.

Not only is Anoushé someone who’s prepared to challenge and push their beliefs, but she is also someone who’s engaged with changing the beliefs and attitudes of our others around us.

There is so much to be gleaned from this interview…. get involved! This is the start of a new format of live video interviews and podcasts here at Lattice Training. Look out for the next in the series, as we will be regularly featuring climbers, coaches, and generally the world’s most interesting and passionate climbers in our community.
