Experience Niseko March Issue - Korrin Barrett Meets Hiromi Tatsumi

Two amazing individuals come together to discuss how they have both overcome adversity and how they continue to make the most out of life!

Korrin Barrett travelled all the way from Australia looking for a snow experience. While that might seem like a normal story, for Korrin it is so much more. Five years ago Korrin went from being healthy and active to struggling for her life in the blink of an eye. What started as a perforated bowel suddenly became life threatening due to medical complications and left Korrin in a medically induced coma for nine days and in the ICU for over four weeks. Korrin spent 233 days in hospital and during this time, she underwent over 25 operations during which both of her feet, her right hand, and most of her left hand were amputated to save her life.

Despite all of this Korrin has never given up on life. Through rehabilitation and hard work, she has begun walking, swimming, and traveling. Her adventures brought her here to Niseko, where she stumbled across the story of Hiromi Tatsumi, who like her had a range of challenges to face and overcome.
