"Throughout a sports career, one thing is crucial, and that is support. Support can come in all different shapes and sizes. Even the smallest of encouragement can go a long way. Two people in particular who have been the backbone of my sporting journey are my parents. They are the two people who have also made my diving career possible. I have one older brother and two younger sisters who each have their own aspirations.

My parents only ever encouraged us to follow what we wanted to achieve. Often, this meant many hours of their own time was given up to help us pursue our own activities. With their help, love and support I was able to chase my dream of becoming an Olympic Diver and in 2016, that became a reality. The best part of that experience was I got to share it with them. The two people who had helped me every step of the way"
