Tell us the story behind your photo:
I have been kickboxing for just 3 1/2 years training 5 times a week for the past year after school for 2 hour sessions. A small group of us recently were selected to form part of the England squad which took us to fight in Antalya, Turkey. This was to be my first ever world championship! I had multiple kickboxing and K1 fights and came home with 2 bronze medals.
