Age 14, Scotland
My home life was difficult when I was growing up, so I didn’t find it easy to concentrate on schoolwork. Things started to change when I began playing for my school football team aged nine.
Four years ago, I started volunteering at my local community sport centre, which has led to some of my best experiences. I’ve travelled to Croatia to deliver an EU Erasmus+ Sport event, made lots of new friends and discovered how much I can do.
I’m looking forward to getting my badminton and football coaching qualifications, and hope to work in sport when I leave school.
