How I started:I started skiing on a family ski holiday. My parents were already skiing and they took my older brother on their holidays, I started going with them at the age of three, and began skiing at a local club in the UK at the age of four. I loved the sport and started competing in dry slope competitions around the UK at the age of six. After that I began competing on snow for a few weeks a year at the age of 12. I was then selected for Team GB at the age of 14!
My Greatest Achievement:My greatest achievement is being selected for the 2023 European Youth Olympics and being the overall British junior champion. However, in the last two years I have been struck with two long periods of injury after I injured my MCL in January 2021 which left me recovering at home for a long period of time, and then the following January I wiped out and suffered from post concussion symptoms for around two months following the crash. So, I am really proud of being able to recover from these and get back on my feet to be selected.
My Greatest Challenge:My greatest challenge has been recovering from those two injuries as I was only 16 at the time, as I was recovering at home trying to juggle school duties, my social life, and the recovery process. Thankfully, I recovered fully and managed to take a clean sweep at the British championships following this injury so I was really happy to be back on my feet training.
My Hobbies:Outside of skiing, I enjoy volunteering at my local ski club, because when I was a member the coaches were also volunteers so I like to give back to the club. I also like to bake at home and spend time with my friend and family especially throughout the summer months.
My Future Aspirations:In the long-term future I would like to go to the Olympics and be competitive on the world cup tour, and in the short term I would like to qualify for the Junior world championships. So lots to look forward to!
