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

Living in Malta, a small island, I have always enjoyed swimming.

When I was 10 years old, my mother's friend took me for my first water polo training session with her son (now my friend and team-mate Ben Plumpton).

We trained with Marsascala Aquatics Sports Club. I really enjoy this sport.

After two years, I joined San Giljan Aquatics Sports Club.

I train three times a week in the morning before school and every evening.

My mother totally supports me with her patience to drive back and forth for training every day. Her satisfaction is my dedication and we obtain results as a team.

My inspiration is a senior team-mate, Dino Zammit, who is a great captain of the Under-20 team, leading us to twice win the Summer National League, and who, at an early age, joined the national senior team.

My ambition is to participate in more international events to help me obtain experience and improve my techniques.
