Future Goals

“I would like to attend more international competitions such as AYOP and TU in the USA. I have now also started coaching with the Angels Allstars in Folkestone and would love to help some of our members who are just starting out to follow in my footsteps and compete at the top level. I am looking into ways of promoting the sport of baton twirling in the UK and participation in sport. I am aiming to start taking judging and coaching qualifications over the next few years.”
