Achievements to date
I am 18 and have just finished my A-levels. I started Taekwondo when I was 4 years old and have trained for many years progressing through the different belts, growing to love every aspect of the sport. Through the years I have competed in many local and national competitions achieving multiple medals in multiple events. By 14 I had become a black belt. I was selected for the England team, and went to my first European Championships in 2017 in Sofia, Bulgaria and it gave me the feeling that there is nothing I can’t do. Over the next few years I have fitted training into my busy school life and attending multiple training camps over the summers in various countries. In 2019, I secured a silver medal for England in the -56kg sparring, which was a very tight match, narrowly missing out on the gold in the last round.
Becoming a Vice-European champion in April 2018
I have been held back by continuous nose bleeds, which has caused me to withdraw from competitions. But after surgery this has not held me back since.
