How’s your year been so far? Any major highlights?

My year so far has been a roller coaster of ups and downs! I started, all guns blazing in full time training as an athlete, on a mission to get selected to represent Team GB for Canoe slalom. In addition to that I’ve been modelling for various fashion brands and doing social media campaigns.

As I came to the end of the year I had the selection race for the Rio Olympics and missed out by the narrowest of margins. Now I’m just deciding what to do next… It’s exciting!

What song have you got on repeat at the moment?

I have so many songs I like at the moment but Justin Bieber is killing it.
