Why did you begin your sport?

I HAVE BEEN SWIMMING SINCE I WAS 6 MONTHS OLD, BUT I STARTED COMPETING BECAUSE IT WAS GOOD FOR MY HEALTH, AND BECAUSE I ENJOY IT.

NO, BUT BEFORE A RACE, I FOLLOW A SIMPLE WARM UP ROUTINE, TO GET MYSELF READY TO RACE.

WINNING GOLD IN THE SB9 100M BREASTROKE AT THE CANADIAN OPEN AND JOINING THE AUSTRALIAN DOLPHINS PARA SWIM TEAM.

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

ELLIE COLE, BECAUSE SHE IS VERY CONFIDENT AND DOES NOT LET HER IMPAIRMENT GET IN HER WAY. I MET HER WHEN I JOINED THE TEAM, AND SHE IS A GOOD TEAM MATE.

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

MY FAMILY AND COACHES, BECAUSE HEY ALWAYS SUPPORT WHATEVER I DO, AND ARE WILLING TO MAKE SACRIFICES FOR ME AND MY SWIMMING.

Do you have any hobbies away from your sport?

I DO MANY THINGS OUTSIDE OF SPORT, LIKE GOING TO THE BEACH OR CHILLING WITH FRIENDS, I ALSO DO OTHER SPORTS AT SCHOOL, LIKE NETBALL AND ATHLETICS.

What is your sporting ambition?

BY THE END OF MY CAREER, I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE GONE TO A PARALYMPICS AND WON A GOLD MEDAL, AND ALSO ACHIEVE A WORLD RECORD, AND ALSO HAVE LOTS OF FRIENDS FROM SWIMMING. I WOULD LIKE TO BE A GREAT ROLE MODEL FOR OTHERS TO LOOK UP TO.
