Udenfor fægtning

I have a Batchelors in Psychology from Sussex University and I currently work for Visiodan and Liontouch.

Hvordan startede du til fægtning?

Both my parents were fencers and competed for Great Britain in the Olympics. My mum still runs the kids fencing club where I started fencing on saturday afternoons. Of course I had all the support I could ask for in my fencing life.

Hvad har du fået ud af fægtning?

The opportunity to travel to so many places and I now have good friends from all over the world. Fencing has been something to wind the rest of my life around and has always provided purpose and a reason to work hard for something.
