What is the Sport you specialise in and how did you get into it?
I’ve always loved swimming and took that passion to the next level with swimming competitively when I was 8. I started to compete locally, later progressing to county, regional and national levels.
Who are your role models/ inspirational figures?
Emma Mckeon, is one of the most successful commonwealth swimmers and one of the best in the world in my favourite event; 100 metres butterfly. She is most definitely a role model, setting the bar high and inspiring others.
What is your greatest achievement in your specialised sport?
Being selected to represent Guernsey in the Commonwealth Games, competing against exceptional talent from the likes of England, Australia, South Africa and Canada in the international final is my greatest achievement so far.
How do you prepare mentally for competing?
For me, having a consistent pre-race routine helps me prepare mentally. I tend to eat the same foods and warm up in the same way so I know it’s time to get into the zone. I also like to listen to House and R&B music to get the adrenalin pumping and the endorphins flowing.
What does it mean to you to compete in the Island Games?
I am so excited to be competing at the Guernsey Games 2023, representing my island in front of a home crowd; it will be so inspiring. This will be the third time I have represented my country at the Island Games. And this year, I’m also going to be competing alongside my sister which is a privilege and an honour. Her speciality stroke is freestyle so I am looking forward to watching her race and to be also competing alongside her in the relays.
