Life's Moments & Inspirations

My greatest achievement has been... Qualifying for the 2014 winter olympics in Sochi and also winning the world cup in Calgary.
My biggest inspiration is... Watching all the Team GB athletes perform and do so well in Rio and in London. Also Sarah Burke who really helped push women’s freestyle skiing to another level.
My next ambition is... To qualify and compete on the 2018 olympics in Korea and get an olympic medal.
My people describe me as... Bubbly, happy, outgoing and smiley.
How I relax is... With a cup of tea cuddled up watching a tv series.
My advice to the young athletes starting out is... Just have fun!! Enjoying the sport is a big part of it and progression will come if you’re just out there enjoying doing it with friends or even if you just enjoy doing your sport solo.
