I am thrilled to be carrying the Olympic torch, it is such an honour and privilege that I can hardly believe it. I attend Dodderhill secondary school in Droitwich where I am keen on sports and have represented my school at swimming, cross country running and netball. I have also been a member of Redditch swimming club for the past 5 years where I regularly compete at county level. In my spare time I am also a keen gymnast and horse rider. I like to think of myself as being very committed and hard working and I am always anxious to help and encourage others. Every step of the way I'll be thinking of young people like myself as well as my family, friends and school and encouraging them to take part in sport.
