I have been skiing since I could walk and took up an interest in freestyle skiing by following my older brother Michael through the ski park when we were away on family holidays. I quickly progressed and entered my first competitions in 2010. In 2011, I entered all ski discipline competitions at the British Championships in Laax, Switzerland and won gold in my age category in all four events.
In 2013, I became the youngest ever athlete to win the British Championships overall womens’ slopestyle event. In 2014, I repeated this victory, also adding the overall halfpipe title as well as winning all of my age group events.
As a result of these successes, I became the youngest member of the GB freestyle team representing GB in both halfpipe and slopestyle disciplines – the only GB athlete doing both.
In 2016, I was selected to represent GB at the Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway. I am extremely proud to say that I made history by becoming the first ever GB athlete to win a gold medal on snow by winning the halfpipe competition. A few days later I added a bronze medal in the slopestyle event.
I am currently in the sixth form at Fort Pitt Grammar School for Girls where I am studying for A-Levels having obtained 10 GCSEs.
