At the 2016 Olympic trials I was rooming with two of my squad mates Chris and Lenny. Every night for the finals sessions we'd go through the races and predict the 1st to 3rd. The one who guessed the least right would have to do the daily dishes.
Mostly rap. Kanye, Mac Miller, Jon Bellion.
I have also like a bit of Kesha and T Swizzle.
I think a sports journalist. I'd need to find someway to get into sport as it gives me so much.
Anything competitive, I love playing video games with friends. When we aren't gaming we'll usually just hang out.
I'm not bad at wheelchair basketball. It's always a fun thing to play with friends.
Domestically it's the Gold Coast because I love the theme parks.
Internationally it would have to be England because that's where a lot of my family is.
