Why did you begin your sport?

I began when I was 11 years old because my dad wouldn’t let me walk to school on my own until I could defend myself. It was also a way to get fit because I was also playing rugby at the time.

Do you have any pre-competition routines or rituals?

Always eat a peanut butter and banana sandwich the day of competition!

What is your most memorable sporting achievement?

Silver at the youth world championships and Bronze at the Youtb Olympic Games

Who is your hero / idol, and why? Have you ever met them?

Someone that I admire in the boxing world would have to be Anthony Joshua because he is a great boxer but also because he is very humble and generous. That is how I always want to be.

Who has been the most influential person or people in your career and why?

The most influential people in my life would have to be my parents. They have taught me to always be the best that I can be, push through the hard times and to never quit. Without my Home coach, Fox, I wouldn’t be where I am now. He has trained me since I was 13.

What is your sporting ambition?

GOLD at the Commonwealth Games and GOLD at the Olympic Games... I want to be world champion!
