What does being a Strathclyde Siren mean to you? Becoming a Siren is very special to me. I have watched them compete the last two seasons and seeing them inspire younger girls to get involved in sport and dream bigger is something that I’m so honoured to be a part of.   What inspired you to play netball? I loved all sport when I was a little girl, but I joined my primary school netball team and then fell in love with it from there.   What advice would you give to young netballers who aspire to play netball professionally? I would say to young girls to never girl up. There will be hard times but also better times on your journey but as long as you really want it, stay focused and put in the work nothing can stop you.   The best thing about playing netball is… Being part of a team because no matter how hard or difficult it gets we face it together.    Just for fun... If I could take three things on a desert island, they would be… My phone, a ball and a massive bag of food If I had a superpower, it would be… To fly! My favourite quote is... "It’s not about how hard you can hit, it’s about how hard you can be hit and get back up again”   My guilty pleasure is... Watching a full Netflix series in a very short amount of time! You would never believe if I told you I… I have twin brother and we are only 1 minute apart
