PricewaterhouseCoopers (Assistant Tax Counsultant); Youth Sport Trust (Researcher)
PhD student in Sport and Performance Psychology
My work focuses on how the world’s best athletes, such as Olympic and World champions, thrive under pressure.
My Typical Day:
There’s no typical day really. Some days I could be doing research, for example conducting interviews or collecting questionnaires from athletes. Other times I could be teaching seminars for undergraduate students and some days I could be mentoring elite athletes to help them perform better in competition.
What I'd do with the prize money:
I’d like to do career talks in schools to promote sport psychology because it’s a subject a lot of people haven’t heard about.
How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Enthusiastic, Ambitious, and Determined.
Were you ever in trouble at school?
On occasions, yes but generally, I was trouble-free!
Tell us a joke.
I’m writing a book about reverse psychology. Please don’t buy it.
