How I got into it: My part­ner men­tioned it to me once and I just ended up look­ing into it.

Who I men­tor / My Lit­tle Sis­ter /Brother: Cadeyrn

I was in­spired by: I do quite a bit of work in schools so I’ve al­ways seen a lot of good kids who just need that lit­tle bit of qual­ity one on one time.

It helps if you can: Be your­self and be con­sis­tent.

Things we do to­gether: Play foot­ball, play games, chill out.

Best ex­pe­ri­ence / best thing about it: See­ing Cadeyrn grow.

Best tip: Don’t have high ex­pec­ta­tions just go with the flow.
