When and why did you begin the sport?

I began dancing when I was about three years old casually, because I would always prance around the house and beg mum to dance. I began netball when I was six because a lot of my family played netball, especially my mum.

Who do you consider as your sporting inspiration and why?

In dancing, Li Cunxin is my inspiration because he had all of the odds against him, yet he still had faith and believed in himself. In netball, my mum is my inspiration because she has taught me everything I know and has supported me in everything I do.

What do you consider the ultimate goal you would dream to reach?

I would love to be accepted into a dance school in Auckland, Brisbane or Melbourne.
