Favourite thing to do outside of your sport:

Not an easy question because I love sport so much but when I not playing sport I love to travel overseas with my parents and see the world. I like to listen to Rap music and play guitar. I also like to socialize with my friends and I am an AFL tragic so going to the footy with my mates ticks all the boxes.

Favourite Quote:
