Tell us a bit about yourself?

I am an 18-year-old who is very sporty, and I have played goalball since I was 9 years old. I started playing goalball after attending a have a go session at actionnaires in Hull. I then got older and started to get invited to talent camps with Goalball UK. I was given the opportunity to become part of the GB youth team, then one thing led to another and I was competing in the European Para Youth Games where we got a bronze medal. After this I was then offered a place in the GB men’s senior team where I still am and am loving been part of the GB men’s team it is like a big second family.

What do you do outside of goalball?

I am a massive football fan and a season ticket holder for Nottingham forest. I go to as many games as I can, well when the stadium is open. I also have a passion for baking and cooking, although I do not like the cleaning up because flour can get everywhere!

What are you most excited for now that you are part of the Youth Forum?

Now that I am a member of the Youth Forum, I am excited for the opportunities that it is going to provide me and the new people I will get to meet along the way.

We will be chatting to a member of the Youth Forum every weekday this week. Who will we be chatting to next? Come back tomorrow to find out!
