    Describe yourself in three words: Happy, driven and full of energy

    When did you first know you wanted to work in sport?

Hard to tell, I guess when I was 18 and realised I had good leadership qualities. 

    What’s your dream job?

To be a Paralympic national team coach and at same time make specialised prosthesis for the athletes. I also want to have a big sport hall at a poor neighbourhood where all kids and young adult can come a try whatever sport they want so they can be able to become champions not matter economic background. I want them to see ALL sports and not just a few popular ones. Want them to be a part of a movement were they can educate themselves and develop as athletes, physically and mentally. 

    What’s your greatest fear?

Not being able to do sport anymore.

You have the power to make one change to the Olympics, what would it be?

A program for athletes to become bigger role models in their sport movement and also opportunities for them to make a change for less fortunate children through a sustainable business.

    What mistakes do sports make when they target people like you? 
They think we are not capable of making a change but our voices are actually louder than anyone else's because we show our power through actions.
