How do you stay motivated and push yourself in training?

I like to surround myself with like minded people who have similar goals as I do who can push me everyday to do my best!

Many athletes have pre-game rituals that help them get into the zone. What are some of your personal pre-game rituals or routines that you believe help you get in the zone before hitting the beach or pool?

I love to get my nails done a few days before racing and I always listen to music on the way to competitions. 

Reflecting on your career so far, what would you consider as the most memorable or defining moment?

A major defining moment in my career would have to be at the 2023 Aussies. I went away to Aussies by myself after my Dad had a life changing accident a couple days prior. Despite the challenges I had to over come that week I managed to get my best results yet at a Aussies Championship and got Gold in the Open Swim Team as a U19.

Are there any specific achievements or milestones that you are particularly proud of and that you feel have significantly impacted your journey as an athlete?

I feel like my first ever state Gold medal in U14s was a big milestone for me and really kick started my surf career and gave me the belief and motivation that I could do well in the sport.

Beyond your athletic pursuits, do you have any hobbies or passions that might surprise people?

My dream job is to be in the Army or a Police Officer!

How do you balance your intense training and competition schedule with personal interests outside of your sport?

It's very hard to fit in all the hours of training, work and maintaining a social life but I believe it's important to have other distractions away from sport. I have been very lucky that I have a flexible work schedule which allows me to work around my trainings. I have also been blessed with friends that understand my commitments and will plan to catch up around my work and training hours.

What are your top 3 ENGINE products (either for racing or training)?

I am in love with the Santorini one piece they are so comfy and look amazing!

The weapon goggles are my all time favorite's as they fit really well and don't leave horrible goggle marks. I am also obsessed with the Classic Puffer Jackets, since I live in SA we don't have the warmest weather and the puffer jacket is honestly a life saver for early morning trainings and cold carnivals!
