How did you first get involved in your sport?

I started in 2015 doing a beach volleyball camp when I was 12 and fell in love with the sport. I then started playing indoor volleyball for 7 years, however, now am focusing solely on beach volleyball.

What is a typical week for you?

I train beach volleyball two times a week at Crystal Palace and 2 weekends a month travel to Sandbanks in Poole to train. I follow a volleyball specific gym plan in which I go gym 4 days a week if I can, depending on study.

What are your greatest sporting achievements?

I have competed internationally for the England junior and senior national teams, competing against countries such as Russia and Italy. I have on the U15, U16 and U18 indoor national championships with my old team Richmond Volleyball. Finally, this season I qualified to compete in the UK grand slams and have international intentions this summer to compete in U20 and U22 international beach competitions.
