6. Your sporting hero
David Beckham - I think he is a great role model, he does a lot for charity and supports a lot of juniors who have the same dreams as him.
7. Random fact about you
I carried the Olympic Torch through my home town, Haverhill. Originally I was meant to be carrying it in Ipswich, but when the locals found out it wasn't in Haverhill written petitions and Facebook pages were held, and also the news and local MP got involved. It was one of the best days of my life carrying it through the town I lived in.
Recently I have also been presented with the 'Freedom of Haverhill' at a recent Council Meeting. The support has been absolutely incredible!
Also, I love a challenge and have done a Bungee Jump, Gliding and Zip Wired over the River Trent :) I will be looking for a new challenge and hopefully raise more money for charity.
