I have been kickboxing two and a half years.

What is it you love about the sport?
I love the thrill and determination it brings and I love competing against other people.

What are your proudest moments within the sport?
My proudest moments were getting my first medal for weapons and my very first belt.

What are you hoping to achieve as a BKC Ambassador?
As a BKC Ambassador I am hoping to achieve recognition for my weapons and forms and hope to show that no matter what illness or disability you have, you can still be successful and achieve.

Is there anyone you’d like to thank for your success so far?
I would like to thank my club, Limavady Titans, for everything and everyone else that has been involved along the way.

What does the future hold for you?
I want kickboxing to always be part of my life and I hope to teach disabled forms to other people who would like to learn. I also hope to take my own training to the next level.

What does the future hold for the sport, in your opinion?
I hope this will become recognised as an Olympic sport and make other kickboxers fulfil their dreams. I think it would definitely make the sport more popular.

Anything else you would like to add?
I would like to thank BKC for giving me this opportunity.
