Sabre Norris shot to fame when her interview with The Today Show went viral. You see, she was being interviewed about the surfing comp she was competing in when her cheeky sense of humour had the audience in stitches. 

Since the video went viral she's been flown to the United States to appear on The Ellen Show, started a YouTube channel with her family – Sabre and the Norris Nuts, and most recently she and her family have teamed up with Specsavers to advocate for eye health in children.

Along with her Dad Justin and sister Sockie, Sabre talks about becoming an internet celebrity, and why it’s important for all kids to get their eyes checked.
