Interview

How did you first get involved in your sport?

When I changed school a whole array of new sports became available. I tried them all and fencing was the one that stuck.

What does a typical week look like for you?

I am currently training full time. My week's training varies depending on whether or not I have a competition. Training with the Hungarian national team I do 7 fencing sessions and 3 fitness sessions. As well as that I have 2 individual lessons with my coach in Hungary. I also travel back to London to train with my coach and the British team. In my free time I like to socialise and visit places.

What motivates you to continue in your sport?

I want to become one of the best at Senior levels the World circuit. I know that this will be a long process but fencing has given me so many experiences and taught me a lot and I want to continue this journey. Aside from this, I genuinely love the sport of fencing and its demand for a balance between the physical and mental aspects of the game.

Who is your sporting hero and why?

Serena Williams is one of the greatest athletes of all time. Her legendary career inspires me as she represents what it means to be a powerful woman. However, she has also used her influence to be an advocate for racial and gender issues.

What do you do in your free time?

In my free time i like to socialise, read and visit new places.
