I am nominating Tracy Thomas to hold the torch for Gwynedd. At a time in my life where my confidence was lacking my feeling of self worth was low my mum inspired me. She inspired me through her love, kindness, enthusiasm and drive to go to university. I never thought that I would ever make it to year two of university but thanks to my mums support I am here a changed person. She taught me no matter what hand I'm dealt you have to make the best of it. She is an inspiration to me and my three sisters who she has brought up all by herself. My mum is always pushing herself through running for charities like the Race for Life (Aberystwyth, Ceredigion) and in Race the Train (Tywyn, Gwynedd), she also helps coach Dysynni Squash Club two nights a week, and helps with Dragon Sports a sports club for young primary school children, in the local school Pen-Y-Bryn. She also used to be a level one gymnastics coach in Dollgellau Gymnastic Club, to help out but sadly our coach passed away so the club stopped. My mum is always welcoming to her friends and family who she sees on a regular basis and always makes time for them. I genuinely believe my mum would be a good representative for Gwynedd and she would make everyone in the county proud.
