It is an honor to represent my country!

I started playing at age 9. My mom prompted me.

4. Do you feel the sport of netball gets enough support from the local community?

No I do not feel that the sport gets enough support from the local community and that’s disappointing because it’s a great sport to watch and to play.

5. What are ultimate goals in life, both on and off the court?

My Goals in life both on and off the court is to never give up, and to keep getting better every day.

6. If you had to, for some reason, have one non-netball player on your team, like a local politician/entertainer/public figure, who would you choose and why?

I would choose PowerGirl because she’s awesome, and I love her positive energy!

7. Which Bermudian athlete, coach or sporting figure do you admire most and why?

It’s hard for me to choose just one person. I admire my coaches Kimale Evans and Gina Benjamin because they are great netballers and they always push me to do my best. They believe in me and I’m thankful for them!
