How did you get into Basketball?
Since before I can remember myself I have been involved into sports. I started with synchronized swimming and after 10 years of competitive sport I decided to try the sport my parents used to play. I instantly fell in love.
What is your most memorable moment from Basketball?
This sport has given me so many memorable moments. The one I will never forget is Varsity 2015. We beat the University of Brighton clinching a win for the University of Sussex. The intensity, the crowd and the passion all my teammates showed on the court is something I will never forget.
As a woman, what do you feel like you get from Basketball?
I don't even know where to begin. Basketball has helped me so much, for instance by building my confidence and my self-esteem. In this sport I have met the most amazing people. My team is my family!
What would you say to a woman who was thinking about joining Basketball?
Do it! You will have not experienced enjoyment until you are on the court.
