Adele had always been shy when it came to getting involved with sport as she felt her impairment would be an issue. Over the past year, Adele has volunteered her time to the ASA's mygames 'Young Disabled Volunteers Back Swimming' programme - helping young disabled volunteers prepare for the Olympic and Paralympic trials. Having no previous swimming knowledge or experience, Adele had concerns that she would not be able to be involved due to her visual impairment; however she accessed courses and attended events allowing her to build confidence and meet new people. Her greatest achievement was volunteering at the International Disability Championships in Sheffield. Despite being exhausted she always presented medals to the athletes with a cheery smile. Whilst watching the event, she became inspired by the athletes that had a multitude of disabilities and realised that her disability was not something that should hold her back. Soon after Adele joined her local masters swimming club where she regularly trains and is currently on a course to enable her to become an aquatic teacher. With the help of the programme Adele is developing a whole new set of skills and building confidence every day. She has flourished into a fully fledged volunteer, and after overcoming her own fears she has now decided to help people in her own community starting up a tennis club for the visually impaired. Adele is a fantastic role model for all, and an inspiration for people with a disability! Being involved with the tennis club will enable me to show other young people who have a visual impaired, they shouldn't let anythng hold them back and they should feel that they can follow their passions and dreams.
