My country of birth is Zimbabwe where I lived for the first 7 years of my life, our family moved to England in 2001 and it has been our home ever since.
I wasn’t always involved in athletics, My first introduction to sport was through my Dad who loved football and I joined Bramley Juniors my first junior football team at 11 Years old, this was when I realised I had the desire to continually improve my skills and become the best version of myself. From 11 to 17 I played for Bramley, our team secured multiple promotions through the leagues and eventually earned ourselves a spot In the top league amongst the best teams in Leeds.
My first introduction to Athletics came through school where my teachers and peers pushed me to compete in the cross country team, I saw this as an opportunity to gain extra fitness to aid my football and the end result was 3 back to back to back player of the year awards between ages 13 to 15. Being naturally fast my school teachers saw that I had more potential in the sprints and I traded cross country for track at 15 and I competed in the 400m, that year our boys team took home the Leeds schools championship. After this year I decided to focus fully on football where I eventually went on to play for current League 2 side Harrogate Town in their academy programme until I was 18 years old before I decided to go to University.
During my university years I didn’t take part in any competitive sports however in 2016 after finishing my studies I decided to give Track my full attention at the age of 23 and see where it would take me.
