Brisbane woman Candice Hedge has spoken for the first time since escaping death in the London terror attacks, saying she won't be deterred by coward terrorists. 

"I have more to do here [in London]"

"People are cowards ... I'm not going to let them change my life - well they have but I'm going to turn it to my advantage if I can."

Candice was at work at Elliot's Cafe in Borough Market last Saturday night when people started running into the restaurant screaming. 

34 year old Hedge hid, but told Seven's Sunday Night about the moment she was spotted by one of the attackers. 

"I think he was leaving [the restaurant] but as he turned around, he spotted me there. It was just one quick go, and that was it" 

Candice has been stabbed once in the neck. She ran to find her co-worker boyfriend Luke, while clutching a cloth to her throat. 

"I could feel the amount of blood, it was warm on my hand and I was vomiting blood, quite a bit"

It was then, that she thought she might die. 

"I was thinking, I don't want to die," she said. 

Luke admits it was terrifying. 

"There as a brief moment where we were like 'this might be it'"
