How long have you played korfball: 10 years

First memory of playing korfball: I began playing Korfball at my first year at high school. One day after school there was a coach running a training session in our sports hall, so me obviously being very keen at sports I decided to try it out. It didn’t start well when I couldn’t reach the Korf when I shot but I kept attempting and before I knew it I was signing onto my first Korfball club, Ely Vikings.

What are your hopes for yourself and Scotland for the future: Signing for Trojans in 2015 was a great achievement for me, it’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while and I’m really looking forward to the challenges ahead. Next year is when I make my debut for Scotland. I’m itching to play at a international level and to show all our opponents how much of a young, dynamic squad we have for the upcoming tournaments.
