    "I've been a synchronised skater for the past four years and therefore I feel like I've adopted many siblings, #SquadGoals has become a legitimate part of my vocabulary and I have pushed myself harder than I thought was possible. Aside to skating, I am a primary school teacher, currently teaching 6 year olds and brainwashing them about synchro. In my spare time -who am I kidding, what's that?- I am a big Torvill and Dean fan and follow them about the country watching their shows. "


    What does synchronized skating mean to you?

    "Synchro is the most challenging thing I have ever done, but equally the most rewarding, and I genuinely think it makes me a better person. "
