It's been hard juggling my studies with my athletics career and a part-time job but it's been worth it. I ran for England in 2015 and 2016, I won the Colleges Championships and qualified for the championships for 3 years in a row, I've been put forward to be captain for the West Midlands and I've achieved high grades in my studies.
