From a very young age I knew I wanted to be an athlete, it didn’t really matter what sport I just wanted to excel at it. Credit to my school swim instructor I took up swimming at the age of 8. Hoddesdon S.C. was the best local club so joining their squad seemed the obvious choice. I grew to love the sport, working my way up to county champion aged 9, regional champion at the age of 13 and eventually national champion at 16. By the age of 17 I was representing Great Britain at major competitions. At the age of 20 I turned to triathlon due to a reoccurring shoulder injury. Thankfully my shoulder is now fully recovered but changing sport to triathlon has been the best decision I have ever made. I’m now looking to pursue a career as a professional Triathlete. I feel I would be an ambassador to any brands I get the opportunity to represent. I’m extremely driven and dedicated to my sport. There will always be a smile guaranteed when I cross the finish line!
