"When I was 15 years old, I was left paralysed as a result of an operation that when wrong! I used to love sport before this unfortunate event took place. I went back to school for my final year, I never participated in P.E. for that full year. This was simply because there was no sports I was allowed to play. I soon knew how it felt to be disengaged and left out, because everyone could do every sport but I could'nt even give it a go. I know there will be children still in schools who feel like I did all them years ago."
"Since then, I motivated myself and worked hard and became a Paralympic Athlete! I have represnted Great Britain at two Paralympic Games. I am now retired from International sport and I feel I am in a great position to be able to share my experiences and my sport of Wheelchair Basketball to the next generation. The sport is so inclusive it acts as a great leveller and I find that the children who don't usually show interest in sport or exercise, really excel. For me to be able to inspire one person a day, month or year allows me to believe I was paralysed for a reason and that reason is to Inspire!"
