What attracted you to working for RLWC2021?
I love the huge sense of diversity and inclusivity that the RLWC brings - the fact that all three games are represented on the same level is something I had to be involved in as I feel it's so important nowadays that sport is represented as equally as possible - more sports should follow this example if they can! Also from a creative perspective, I love the brand and the powerful message it represents. I feel that this experience is going to be one of the best possible ways I can develop my skills, and is something I think I'll never forget.
What is your favourite sporting memory?
My dad and brother took me to my first football match when I was 8 – we’re a Manchester United family, so it had to happen at some point. In honour of the occasion my dad took me to Sports Direct and bought me my first bit of kit – the white away shirt, and I loved it (although you should have seen my mums face when I arrived home wearing it, as until then I was dressed in pink sequin tops from Next). It was United vs. Norwich City and as we won 2-1, the atmosphere was amazing.
