“Even though I did well in my GCSEs, I hated school, it really stressed me out, there were days when I struggled to get out of bed and go in. It wasn’t easy to think about my future career. At home it was just me and my mum. So when I told her about going down the military route she was quite sceptical but eventually came round to the idea because of the future job security and income it could offer me.

When I was younger I had amenia and I felt really let down by my body. The early days at MPCT were quite daunting, having to match the men in the physicals. But instructors have supported me to improve and I have took up boxing to give myself a better chance.”
