What inspired you to play polo? How did you learn?
I studied equestrian science at University. So, before that I was absolutely obsessed with horses. I was literally obsessed. Then, I met my coach David Anderson and he pretty much raised me in polo. He’s about seventy something now so he has stopped teaching people and he met me and I was again, really obsessed. I was about thirteen/fourteen when I started playing which in the life of a professional sports person is kind of late. So, I say to anyone you can start doing what you love regardless of how old you are.
What advice do you have for any younger girls who have the same aspirations as you?
Stay really persistent if you believe in it try to make it work for you. I look at this surfer girl that I really find quite fascinating her name is her name is “Bethany Hamilton” and she lost her arm during a shark attack. You would think that someone like that would quit because you need your arm to balance while surfing but with persistency she’s become a big inspiration for many young girls to look up to. So I think if you stay persistent, persistency brings about dedication and hard work in which you would achieve what you set out to do.
