Dual Commonwealth Games gold medalist Madison de Rozario believes the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics has the power to change the perception of disabilities.
For de Rozario, she remembers that during one race that she needed to medal.
"I remember going to be in my last race in Rio which was 800m and I hadn't made my way onto the podium for an individual event yet," she said.
"I remember thinking in this 800, which is less than two minutes long, that I need to get on the podium. It's not the best feeling."
De Rozario speaks about her struggles with money in a new mini-series with finance company OneVue.
Looking ahead to Tokyo 2020, de Rozario is searching for that elusive gold medal to add to her three silvers. It's both an exciting and stressful time.
"On the one hand it is so exciting because we trained for four years, but it's also stressful,"
"We have a countdown on in the gym that I trained in and every time I see it, I just feel like a little more stress. but it's exciting. We've done all the work so we'll see how it goes."
It's also a bit of a changing of the guard ahead of Toyko with long-time and beloved para-athlete Kurt Fernley having retired at the end of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
De Rozario is stepping into Fernley's role and while there's a bit of pressure to live up to his loud voice and powerful messages, she's excited to take on the role.
"He's done some really amazing things for our sport and continues to even now that he's retired," she said.
"I think honestly, this is one of the responsibilities that comes with the Paralympics and platform is growing and I hope I'm doing justice and representing all these people in the community."
