Any other information you wish to share: Sky Sports Feature in the documentary “Aquaphobia” My personal philosophy is motivated by the belief that “you can
achieve anything if you put your mind to it. If you don’t conform to the typical standards of what a swimmer ‘looks like’, find a strategy that works for you. Do it your way” This was the primary focus of my feature on Sky Sports feature. To show young aspiring athletes that there are swimmers from a black background like me, and I can be that example for future generations.
