I learnt to ski at the age of 4 because my Dad really wanted another skiing holiday and couldn’t wait any longer. I was soon hooked and I wanted to ski with my parents rather than in ski school, so I enrolled for ski lessons at Kendal Ski Club which introduced me to racing. Later I joined Ravens Ski Club in Sunderland and the Scottish Ski Club and I knew that I wanted to be a ski racer.
I’m currently on my gap year training and racing mainly in the Aosta valley with The British Ski Academy. it is hard work, but also a lot of fun! I’m on the England U21 Alpine Ski Team and this year in the English Alpine Championships Slalom race, I finished 2nd Brit. My biggest competition so far was the World School Ski championships, where in 2016 individually I finished 5th in the Slalom and 9th in the GS,
