OUT OF THE POOL
If I wasn’t a swimmer I would be: Lost, I wouldn't know what I would be doing, I've only ever been a swimmer. I would like to think I would have a job closer to finishing my university degree.
Tip for the top: Winning isn't everything, but striving to win is.
Life after swimming: I would really like to work with young children and the sporting side probably helping them to swim.
Would most like to meet: I really want to meet the Script. I love them!
Most prized possession: My most prized possession would be the mulberry handbag my mum promised she would buy me when I made the London 2012 Olympic Games
Biggest influence on career: The people that make the biggest influence are my family, friends, coaches and staff at training and of course the rest of the squad #TeamSteel
