WHAT IS SOMETHING INTERESTING THAT PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I really like board sports like wake boarding, but I don’t really get to do them because it’s a lot of risk. I do them when I get time off. I was able to snow board for the first-time last year.

HOBBIES OUTSIDE OF SWIMMING:

Video games and wake boarding.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO AFTER YOUR SWIMMING CAREER?

I am studying engineering, so I would definitely like to get into an engineering firm.

WHO IS THE MOST FAMOUS PERSON YOU HAVE EVER MET?

Ian Thorpe.

FAVOURITE QUOTE?

Take a teaspoon of cement and harden up.
