Today I received the fantastic news that I have a place on the University Of Southampton Sport and Wellbeing Sports Bursary! This is a bursary designed to support elite athletes to help them reach the peak of their performance and to cope with balancing uni and sport. I am so excited to be part of this and it is a brilliant step forward for carriage driving as a whole (not just for myself) as the sport is starting to be taken more seriously.
I got through to interview last week, which was nowhere near as scary as I had feared and I was pleased to have made it that far; to actually get the bursary is AMAZING! Huge thank you to everyone involved in the decision making for giving me this opportunity, it could well completely change my sporting career.
After all this excitement and a long day of lectures its time to dress up and hit The Orange Rooms with my Halls as we go crazy for Halloween!
