How long have you played korfball: 13 years, I started in the youngest age group at Pernix at the age of six.
First memory of playing korfball: Saturday morning outdoor trainings, these didn’t even have
that much to do with actual korfball. They were just an hour of fun on the korfball grounds having fun with all the korfball people.
What are your hopes for yourself and Scotland in the future: Make the world cup and get an opportunity to test myself against the best players in the world.
What would you say to encourage someone to play korfball: Even though a lot of people think it is something we (the players) just made up, it is an actual high intensity sport that is good fun.
Favourite place to visit: Asia. It is so different from what I’m used to, this makes it really interesting to visit. And the food is great.
Favourite Film: The Harry Potter movies.
Star Sign: Libra
