How did you first get involved in your sport?
Playing short tennis at a Disability Fun Day and playing with my mum in the garden and street. When I was 15 or 16 I started going to Tennis Foundation coaching camps.
What does a typical week look like for you?
I go to college 3 and a half days a week. I do physio with my mum most evenings plus exercising with weights. I play tennis at least five days a week in the summer, including a weekly coaching session lasting one hour and a hitting session lasting one hour. At the weekend I go out with my family as well as having a game of tennis.
What do you enjoy the most about being a sportsperson?
I enjoy being good at something. Tennis gives me a purpose and a goal to work towards.
What are your targets for the next 12 months?
Continue having coaching throughout the winter months and take every opportunity to practice with/play against other wheelchair players.
What are your long term aims?
I want to be a top wheelchair player and would like to become good enough to play in the Paralympics in 2016.
Who is your sporting hero?
Rafael Nadal because I love watching him play and because of his passion, determination and skill. I watch every match he plays and have tried to model my game on his. I would love to be like him.
What do you do in your free time?
I go bowling and to the cinema. I enjoy going out with my family for walks with our dog in the country or beside the sea. I love watching tennis matches on television and going to sporting venues to watch tennis.
