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

Started diving after watching my older brother dive. My international debut event was FINA Diving World Series in Beijing. Preferred discipline is 10m individual. Train six days a week, two-four hours per day. Injuries include removal of five loose bodies from my right elbow – was out for two months. Most influential person is my brother for getting me interested in diving. Most proud of winning gold in the 3m springboard at the European Juniors and hearing the national anthem. My heroes are my grandparents, because they mean the world to me and are very supportive of what I do. I'd describe myself as energetic, humorous and friendly. Competing at the 2015 European Games means a lot to me, as it is the first ever European Games. The venue is impressive and this would be my first ever multi-sport games having missed out on the 2014 Commonwealth Games due to injury.
