Age 21, Scotland

I founded Here For Sport in 2019, an organisation dedicated to breaking down barriers to participation in sport – aiming to make sport more accessible and inclusive. I want to tackle problems of under-representation within sport, challenge stereotypes and ensure everyone can find their passion. I’m also looking to address the growing health inequality within the UK.

Over the last three years, I’ve led research into the various barriers marginalised groups face, including the LGBTQ+ community, BAME community and women in sport. I have since used that knowledge to advocate for change and lead outreach programmes across the UK.
