Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

My local swimming club used to run water polo sessions once a month which I really enjoyed. The Halifax water polo coach thought I had some potential as a goalkeeper and asked me to join the club. Water polo training is four-five times a week. Each session is about 1.5 hours. Swimming only session is once a week. There have been a couple of very influential people to date, including Mark SUTCLIFFE (Leeds coach) and Jim CAULFIELD (England Talent). Both have provided great support, advice and encouragement and helped me to get this far. Most proud of two amazing moments: being awarded Most Valued Player of the tournament at the ‘99 inter regional tournament this year and also being voted best overall female player at the Millfield Academy in 2013. If I wasn't an athlete, I'd want to have my own business.
