Origin of Impairment
Acquired (manchestereveningnews.co.uk, 02 Oct 2014)

Impairment Details
In May 2014 after competing in Loughborough, England, she was taken to hospital having experienced the symptoms of a stroke. It took her four months to fully recover. In September 2014 she was again taken to hospital with another suspected stroke.

General
BODY IMAGE
In 2019 she revealed that she has had issues with her attitude towards food. "Essentially I am at a point where I just don't enjoy eating. I don't think I even remember what normal eating is. I feel like I'm more in control than a person with an eating disorder. I'd say I've got disordered eating. Whether or not that is different. There are a lot of females who have issues with body image. I think I've just gone a bit too far in the wrong direction. As much as someone else might think, 'You've got an amazing figure', in my head I still don't. It's essentially a cry for help. So I feel like that's why I am at the point of telling people as I know I'm doing stuff I shouldn't do." (telegraph.co.uk, 18 Apr 2019)

BEIJING 2022
She hopes to compete in snowboarding at the 2022 Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing. "I love it, absolutely love it, the challenge of pushing myself is what I live for." (paralympic.org, 04 Oct 2019)

OTHER ACTIVITIES
She has served as an athlete advocate for UK Athletics [UKA]. (bbc.co.uk, 13 Mar 2021)
