What's your story?

I started kayaking in my local club in my hometown, I remember watching freestyle kayaking and being in awe of the moves. This inspired me to get involved in the sport, and I started competing for the British Team as a junior. Kayaking has taken me all over the world to places I would never have thought of going. I have loved competing and travelling around the world with the sport and meeting so many different people. My highlights are going to Chile and the finals in the World Championships in Argentina, 2017. I love the community spirit surrounding this sport and friendly supportive paddlers everywhere I go.
