ON WHAT SHE LOVES MOST ABOUT AFL:
“It’s playing with your friends. It’s a great feeling to win but I think having that goal with your best mates to run out on the field together, that’s one of my favourite things about it.”
WHEN SHE FEELS MOST EMPOWERED:
“When I’m on the football field.”
HER PRE-GAME ROUTINE:
“I like to go out for coffee in the morning, have a big brunch two hours before and then I just get in the zone. I try not to do too much that’ll drain my energy but I don’t want to sit around either so I go for a morning walk. Then I have a banana and a Powerade before warm up and listen to music. “
HOW SPORT HAS CHANGED HER LIFE:
“I don’t know where I’d be if I didn’t have sport! I love being active and having sport in my background has really helped. I love getting outdoors and doing things, I hate being inside. I’ve done sport pretty much since I could walk so I don’t know what life would be without it.”
HER MESSAGE FOR YOUNG GIRLS WHO LOOK UP TO HER:
“With everything going on with football right now, if you love football, I’d stick with it. Everything is changing and there is a pathway for the young girls, to have that goal and actually have reason to work towards it is amazing, I’d say just stick with it.”
