My Talent is Goalball, a Paralympic Sport for the Blind and Visually Impaired. My goal is to join the GB Squad and play at Tokyo 2020!

My experience with Talent Backer has been interesting. At first it was exciting, something new and intuitive to help people reach their aspirations. After the first 2 weeks things started to slow and I became a little disheartened, but I gave it a push and then Boom! I got half my target in one donation!

The money raised will be used for equipment and tournament costs, the first of which is in November. If anyone is interested in the sport they can get all the information they need from www.GoalballUK.com who are also on Facebook.

My goals are to be able to train as hard as possible to improve upon the skills I already have. I want to be recognised for my efforts and be trialled to become a member of the Great Britain Squad
