“It was a privilege to compete at The World Championships in Chicago this month amongst the very best players in the world.
I’m going to be honest.
I put very high expectations on myself. And when I don’t meet those, I feel like a failure.
But even being able to feel these emotions so deeply is a huge honour. Nothing else compares to the intense highs and lows you get as a professional athlete.
Proud that I don’t hide away from these challenges (sporting and academic), that I put myself out there at the very highest level possible, and I back myself through my actions. I know there are so many who would love to be competing on these elite platforms and I’m working hard to continue getting these opportunities and to make more of them.
