AMBASSADOR
In 2018 she became an ambassador for the Learn to Swim programme, a scheme that promotes swimming among young people in Scotland. She began swimming with the programme in Aberdeen, Scotland. "I got asked if I would like to do the role, and I was really honoured. I think it's important to show other people with a disability it doesn't matter. You can learn to swim and don't need to go into private lessons. They can go into the normal Learn to Swim programme. Swimming has been a huge part of my life. It's given me more confidence and so many experiences to travel and meet new people." (eveningexpress.co.uk, 14 Nov 2018; scottishwater.co.uk, 31 Aug 2020)
