My Story

I am running for children's charity Youth Sport Trust to make a difference to the health and happiness of future generations.

Youth Sport Trust equips educators and empowers young people with the vision of creating a future where every child enjoys the life-changing benefits of play and sport. 

As a teenager, I was lucky enough to be on the receiving end of the work of YST by being part of the Young Ambassador programme. This programme empowers young people to become leaders through sport, with the aim of driving opportunity, engagement and change for other young people. These invaluable experiences inspired me to become a PE teacher. Youth Sport Trust also works with educators to optimise the quality of their PE provision.

Sport gives young people a platform to have their voice heard and a place to feel they belong. YST harness this extraordinary power to change young lives today and help them to build a brighter tomorrow.

There is a crisis in young people's wellbeing, with rising numbers reporting symptoms of anxiety and depression, alongside a decline in levels of physical activity. Youth Sport Trust is fighting to help all young people tackle the issues they face in today's world.

Together we're transforming lives through sport and play. #TeamYST
