BMX is my life and I have been riding and racing since I was very young.
Growing up in South London aged 16 is tough and it could be so easy to feel that as a young person one's horizons are very limited. But being involved with the BMX Club at Peckham gave me so much to strive for: it made me believe in myself and my ability. It also taught me how to share and to work in a team, competing, but also always wanting the best for the other riders too.
The discipline of the sport has helped me achieve more at school because you need to be dedicated, not give up if you have set-backs, and always push yourself that bit further.
I feel I am looked up to as a role model for kids in my local community, inspiring them and other riders, and I dream of helping other young people find their way in life, both within the wider community and within sport itself.
BMX racing is a sport accessible to so many, regardless of where you live or what opportunities you may feel aren't there for you. It is something that can appeal to youngsters without much vision of the future who maybe lack confidence in themselves.
It is a family sport and riders range from four-year-olds to adults, girls as well as boys.
I am honoured to be an ambassador for the Sky brand, promoting the development of sport within the community and equally putting BMX on the map and helping to change the stereotypical negative image that people have of kids on their BMX.
