My daughter Emily has always held a keen interest in Sport and her desire is to be a PE Teacher. The Olympics coming to London has not only given her renewed drive to succeed in her studies but will give her focus on the teamwork and personal goal setting required to achieving her full potential. I truly believe being exposed to the Olympic s will help her grow as an individual and take an active role in the wider society of the UK. Emily is active in netball, swimming and running and is part of the local Explorer scout unit where she has flourished in organising and participating outdoor activities such as trekking in Snowdonia, rock climbing, kayaking and camping. She has 3 younger siblings who take great joy in hearing about her sporting and social activities and I have no doubt that they will follow her lead in enjoying a healthy, active lifestyle taking advantage of the benefits of both challenging oneself and working with others.
