Autobiography

Before gymnastics I studied ballet, tap and stage dance. The dancing didn't really work out for me so I decided to try gymnastics as a school friend did it, so I thought I'd give it a go!

I started gymnastics when I was 7 at Bigwood Gymnastics Club and trained every Saturday morning, however this soon increased to 3 sessions a week. I placed 3rd at my first Regional competition when i was 9 years old and that's when I decided to move to Notts Gym Academy. Once I moved to Notts the training soon increased and I now train up to 30 hours a week.

I won my first British title when I was 12, competed in my first International when I was 13 and from then on I never looked back. Throughout my career I’ve had some amazing experiences which include going to two Commonwealth Games, nine European Championships, seven World Championships and my highlights being selected for two Olympic Games !! 

It’s crazy to know I can now call myself a double Olympian for the rest of my life and hopefully I still have many more great experiences to come. 

Outside the gym I've always loved fashion and designing new style leotards. I also love just chilling out and spending time catching up with friends and family. I don’t get to see them half as much as I’d like due to my busy training schedule. 

As for the next few years?

Who knows what the future holds ! I'm excited to take on the final part of my gymnastics journey, it’s been incredible so far with many ups and downs but I wouldn’t change that for the world. It’s made the person i am today and I i feel so lucky to have fallen in love with a sport that's changed my life forever.
