Motorsport Ireland has been an important part of my life since birth. It has provided my family with professional racing careers and associations as well as life-long friends.

Growing up, it was always my dream to compete in Motorsport. The fact that this opportunity came later in life for me highlights just how inclusive Motorsport in Ireland is for all ages, genders, and backgrounds. There is a place for everyone in this sport.

Since I started competing, I have been given other opportunities through Motorsport Ireland such as developing and coordinating the Go Girls Karting & STEM initiative. Launched jointly by Motorsport Ireland and Formula Female in September 2019 with the backing of Sport Ireland and CJJ Motorsports, this grassroots programme is designed to open up motorsport to young girls and highlight the career opportunities it provides.

Through my own education and experience of working within motorsport, I feel it is our duty to give back to the next generation. Motorsport Ireland has always been very supportive in encouraging the next generation of competitors, through their young driver of the year programmes and the Go Girls Karting initiative.

I am proud to be an ambassador for Motorsport Ireland, and I would encourage girls and women of all ages to get involved and experience this fantastic sport for themselves.
