Anastasia Woolmer is a two times Australian Memory Champion. But she wasn’t always blessed with a memory like a steel trap.
In fact, a few years ago Woolmer had a pretty poor memory. She would receive and absorb information, but felt like she could never retain enough detail to share a story at a dinner party or in a group conversation.
Then she read a book about memory competitions that made her realise she could strengthen her memory with a little hard work. After five months of self-training Woolmer became the first woman to win the memory championship title in Australia.
