You are studying Fine Arts: Visual Studies with plans to become an Interior Decorator after you’ve completed your Athletic Career. What inspired you to take this up?
I graduated from University and moved into a full-time role in Marketing! Like my sport, I accidentally stumbled into the position in marketing with no experience, but thanks to my “student mindset” I have taken off on the path towards a life-long career in it. I have always been creative, but I think I chose to study Fine Art in University is because what I create is a direct reflection of my mind, my efforts put in, and my hands. I think although art and sport are very different, they paired well together with the ideas of practice and discipline.
Relaxing and rejuvenating your body is important for every sportsperson; how do you relax after a hectic training session? Is yoga & meditation a part of your routine?
I am a very go-go-go person, so relaxing is very hard for me. I do lie to do yin yoga, but thankfully I find my peace and relaxation in books. I love to read, and I know the importance of keeping your mind sharp, so that is easily my most preferred method of relaxing!
Tell us about Camp Kin and how have you been able to do your part in mentoring the younger generation through this endeavour?
Track has influenced my life in the biggest way through allowing me to recognize the importance of giving back. My career took hundreds of helping hands to get it to where I am, and I will never disregard how many amazing people it took to make all of this possible. If I could help anyone, in any way, to have the experiences and opportunities I have had over the years I would be honoured. I created Camp Kin to help give young aspiring athletes the first few tools to becoming champions of life! I am trying to build a family of athletes to lean on one another, learn from one another, teach them how to ask the right questions, and smile every step of the way!
