I am eighteen years old and I am currently living at home with my mum in Liverpool. I was brought up in Tenerife and went to a Spanish school from the age of three so my first language is Spanish. I enjoyed life over there but when I was fourteen we decided to move back to England so I could gain some qualifications which would enable me to have a better future. We all thought this was going to be difficult as I had no experience in an English school. However, I am proud to say I achieved 8 GCSEs all A* to B. This led me to wanting to complete my A Levels in the school’s sixth form so I could follow my dreams and become a Sport Psychologist. I recently received my A Level results and I now have a place at Liverpool John Moores University studying Applied Sports Psychology, which I am over the moon about.

The reason I am so interested in this subject is because I am an amateur boxer and my overall goals would be to go and compete in the Olympics. Psychology plays a very big role in any kind of sport and my aim is to help all athletes break down the barriers that are stopping them from being successful.

I would just like to thank the John Moran Trust as receiving this award is going to help and support me through university in many ways including my amateur boxing career.

Without this award I know things would be much more difficult and so I appreciate it and thank you very much for helping me work towards my dreams.
