What made you start Cheering?
Since 2008 I have been very intrigued by the whole aspect of cheerleading, although I could only see it when watching movies as cheerleading is not seen as big thing in the UK. After seeing how they dance, did flips and flew in the air I knew I had to make that my reality
What has competitive cheer taught you?
Competitive cheer has taught me that without a team work and strong bond, not only between members but also with your coach, it is impossible to succeed
What’s your favourite thing about cheering for ‘YOUR PROGRAMME’?
My programme has a lot of things I like but I’m so happy being in such a loving environment where everyone is comfortable to speak and express themselves
What’s your Cheer Dream?
My cheer dream is winning Grand Champions

My cheer inspiration is every single cheerleader, Especially my coach!!
