Interview

How did you first get involved in your sport?

I was first involved in swimming from a very young age, and regularly took lessons from age 5-6. I was really inspired to take swimming seriously when i was 7 years old and had the opportunity to meet Clare Cashmore at an event for a national charity for children with upper limb disorders. She brought her medals from 2012 and I decided at that point that i wanted to be competitive swimmer

What does a typical week look like for you?

I will typically train 5 or 6 times per week either in the mornings or the evenings - or sometimes both. I train with my club at a variety of pools including a 50m pool in Hillingdon. It is always a very early start as swimming starts at 0530. I need to get back quickly too to get on my bus to school at 0730. I am often competing twice a month in local or regional competitions, preparing myself for a big performance at the national and international para swimming events. Its tough in the winter months because it is always dark, but really enjoy the early starts in the summer.

What motivates you to continue in your sport?

I am a very competitive person by nature and I love to continually improve myself. I thrive on the competitions and am able to regularly come away with personal bests. Away from competition i have some great friends .

Who is your sporting hero and why?

Clare Cashmore. i was inspired when i met her when i was 7. She is similar to me, and she has achieved so much. She is hero.

What do you do in your free time?

Aside from swimming, i'm keen on table tennis, and am a decent chess player too.
