How did you get involved in your sport?

Do something today that your future self will thank you for

Writing, photography, reading, making videos- anything that allows me to be creative 

How does being a CAN Fund #150Women recipient make a difference to you? 
Being a CAN Fund #150Women recipient will make a huge difference for me because it will help me fund my warm weather training camp, which will be an essential part of my preparations

One of the biggest hurdles I’ve had to overcome is dealing with injuries. Its difficult to be away from your sport, and even more difficult to return feeling confident. I’ve had to battle through a lot of self doubt after injuries to trust myself and my abilities again
