  • Name – Terrelle Iziren
  • Age – 23
  • Goalball Club – Croysutt Warriors

Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into goalball?

I work for Groundwork London, supporting young people with social action projects to help them engage more within their local communities. Two years ago, an optician recommended goalball to me two months after I finished at Goldsmiths University, where I studied Politics and International Relations (BA). Having always viewed sport as a great way to keep fit outside of work, I thought goalball was a good option to try for the first-time. Since then, I haven’t looked back, completing my first tournament in February last year at intermediate level.

Why did you want to get involved with the Youth Forum?

Having represented my university as a student ambassador for two years and volunteered for my local youth magazine (Limelight Magazine) as sports editor for six years, I look forward to ensuring young people’s voices in goalball are heard.

How do you think the Youth Forum could be used to help young voices in goalball be heard?

This could be done through organising events, writing social media posts or blogs for Goalball UK to make young people aware that goalball is an accessible sport for all.

That concludes our youth forum announcements, keep an eye out for more to come from this great young group!
