When not at camp: I'm from Leeds originally, but I've moced to Liverpool to study there. I currently study physical education.
Legend has it that you're great at running and at playing
football (soccer). How'd you get into playing these sports and why do
you like them so much? So I never
realized I was a very good runner until one day during soccer when I
noticed that I wouldn't get as winded as the other kids on my team. I
actually enjoyed running a couple miles a morning, so I ran cross
country for my school team. It's something that I love and keeps me
stress free. When I was in my best shape I ran 5 miles in 36 minutes
during a race. Soccer is a sport that I've always played. I represented
my local region back home when I was younger, so my parents would always
take me to practice. I fell in love with the sport, so I would (and
still do) constantly be playing.
What was the best vacation you've ever been on? It's 100% been this one. It's my first time in America, and the oppurtunity to come out here and teach has been unbelievable. It gives me a chance to pass on some of the knowlege that I've gained over the years, but also learn new skills at the same time. I don't play sports like volleyball, gaga, RobLouJen, or American football back home and so it's fun to be with the campers on those activities and have them teach me new things as well!
What's celebrity would you most want to meet at Starbucks for a cup of coffee? I would have to say Jennifer Lopez. I think she's a really talented musician and we would have a fun conversation. .
