I am nearly 16 now and I go to a mainstream school. I get assessed daily on my progress. I joined Halliwick Penguins Swimming Club after being recommended to join by a physiotherapist. I was about 9 years’ old when I started.
As well as swimming, I also like ice-skating, snooker and football and I support Manchester United. My idol is Wayne Rooney! I also love Peter Pan but I have also read a bit of Harry Potter.
I also love food and have a very good diet. I have posted a picture here of me cooking in my kitchen at home.
My speech is sometimes unclear so I do exercises every day for speech and I also have physio. I am sociable and try to be helpful when I am out and about, for example, by helping people with their trollies and buggies.
I love swimming though, and think it is my forte. I also go to another swimming club on Sunday mornings too. I have some friends there too. I like racing people to see who can swim the fastest! Swimming is where I learnt to escape my mum; if she tries to stop me, I just duck under the water and swim away!
