Outside of school I love to dance because when I was younger I was told I was a very very fidgety kid(still am haha) so my auntie told my mum to put me into dance so I can move around a load more and there’ll be more space for me not to break anything! So now I love it!!



I like doing order of Malta and help people it is like red cross and you have to go to competitions and i like break dancing at the disco at the competitions.

I love to do swimming and ballet out of school!

I love swimming because it is after school on a Friday and it’s a way to start my weekend. I love Ballet because I’ve been doing it for 6 years and I’m in Grade 3!

I also do Piano lessons and CTY Ireland.
