Before the photo, not many people knew who I was.
Even now, if someone says my name the response will usually be, “Tayla who?”
Then they’ll say something like, “Womens footy…kick…photo…trolls…”
And the penny drops. “Oh yeah, right – her.”
That photo turned my life upside-down.
Some of what came after was scary and distressing and confronting and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. But most of what came after was inspiring and uplifting and amazingly cool.
