Bio | I started snowboarding when I was 8 and had my first lesson at Chill Factore with some leftover birthday money.

I wanted to try something different and I had never been to the Chill Factore before so thought I would give it a go. Also my Popsey was really ill at the time with cancer and I found snowboarding helped take my minds of things for the time I was on the slope as I had to concentrate o something else.

I love snowboarding as I find it inspirational and I enjoy riding with friends, I get to meet loads of new people and learn new tricks. Its fun learning the tricks even though you get a few bumps and bruises along the way. Snowboarding has also helped with my confidence and you keep really fit, I would recommend it to anyone! Sport is awesome for kids and adults alike!!

My dream is to be selected for the Winter Olympics in years to come. I am working really hard to achieve this goal and I would be really proud to represent GB. (as well as wanting to be a vet).
