Why do you want to compete in college?

I see college gymnastics as a perfect fit for me, combining all my passions in life. I am driven to achieve continued success at elite level gymnastics and I train everyday to compete at my best. But I also love to travel and meet new people, and I would love to spend the next four years making friends and memories within a successful college team.

What are your college goals?

To further my academic and gymnastics careers, be successful and have an incredible life experience. I would love to leave a positive lasting impression on all my teammates and coaches. 

What makes you different?

I have a fun, infectious personality and love competing. Performing as part of a team brings out the best in me but also enables me to bring out the best in others. I am the gymnast that brings energy and positivity to England squad camps, but behind the smile is a fierce competitor who loves to win.

What is your favorite event and why?

My favourite event is floor because I love the performance element which showcases my tumbling and dance skills. I used to be a champion cheerleader, appearing on UK TV shows and I thrive on competing in front of a crowd. I am pretty awesome on vault too though, just as a side note!
