I’m from a disadvantaged area of Edinburgh and struggled with a dysfunctional family life and at school because I’m Dyslexic.
stumbled upon the Olympic sport of fencing aged 11and it has transformed my life. I was able to channel my anger and frustrations in a positive direction. This had a positive influence on my school life and I began to understand that its ok to make mistakes, that what learning is all about. I have been able to reach the heights of my sport and make an impact on my sport and others around me. “Believe & Achieve”
