About Me

I was born in 2001 in Christchurch, New Zealand. My parents and I moved to Australia in 2003 and since then I have been living and training in Sydney. I attended primary school at Clovelly public school and trained most days of the week during that time. I started playing seriously at the age of 10 and soon I began competing in tournaments. In 2013, I moved to Reddam house to attend high school. That same year I won the Australian 12/u nationals, twice. I really enjoy playing tennis and hope to make a career out of it. It started as a hobby and progressed into being something I love doing daily! I have been working on things, constantly trying to improve my game and have improved massively in the last couple of years! I want to continue trying to give the best I have to offer and hopefully one day I will be the #1 tennis player in the world. I know it will be a hard journey and I will need to push myself, but I am more than willing to do it!

Hobbies: Touch rugby, reading, swimming, hanging out with friends.

Ambitions: To be number one in the world and win Wimbledon! Most of all, to be the best tennis player and person I can be.
