What has netball taught you?

“Netball has taught me a lot, life goes by pretty quickly nowadays, but when you take time to reflect and look back, I am so thankful for the life lessons. It has allowed me to develop the skills to work as part of a team, to be hardworking, to be resilient when in the face of adversity, to sometimes take a leap of faith and see where your journey may take you, and to trust the process – one step at a time. Many skills I’ve developed through netball are transferable into everyday life and life after netball. I’m so excited to be working with Elite Netball Academy to help develop the next generation of netball stars.”

What has netball taught you?

“How competitive I am! But also how to work as a team unit, netball is all about teamwork, working together and supporting each other no matter what happens. I’ve learnt to enjoy every opportunity along the way, don’t overthink it or worry about it, neither of those things will get you anywhere. If you love playing netball and being involved in the sport, you’ll play your best netball when you’re having fun. Don’t forget that!”
