"I reached a point where I just didn't think I was good enough. I didn't really nominate for the previous two drafts just because I didn't think anyone was interested, I was too old or for whatever reason I kind of gave up on myself a little bit."

Draftee Leah Cutting joins the Sounds of the Saints podcast to talk about moving from Adelaide to pursue her footy dream at the age of 29, finding her greatest growth amid one of her darkest times, as well as reuniting with Norwood teammates Hannah Priest and Tahlia Meyer at St Kilda.
