What is your favourite TV show? At the moment I love the Biggest Loser. It always gets me teary but so motivating and inspiring.

Most played song on your playlist? Maybe Carmada,  always pumps me up when I’m running!

Your toughest life lesson? Not everything goes the way you want/plan, you just have to dust yourself off. Tomorrow’s a new day, make the most of it!

Advice for young netballers? Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it!
