The life skills that netball has taught me is so much more probably than I could’ve learnt at university in regards to, to be able to push yourself harder. I think my first couple of pre-seasons between the ages of 16 and 20, I just didn’t know how to push myself and I was like ‘I’m going to die.’ ‘Like, I’m definitely going to die if I run any harder.’ And when you learn that you’re not and you can run harder and you can push yourself harder, is amazing because they you learn that resilience, and then that resilience transfers over to if you miss out on a job, if you don’t make a team. It’s like ‘yep, that sucks, but it’s not the end’, and it teaches you how to get up and move on to the next thing so quickly. Anything else? Meditation, being mindful, learning to chill out. Clearly I’m not very good at that, I’m working on it! My uncle was playing AFLwhen I was growing up, so, it was pretty cool that I could always see him play footy, which is what he loved to do, and even now he still gives me advice and comes and supports our games, and I can always call him for a chat about anything. Dad’s awesome, I think he has come to so many netball games, and I’ve got two brothers as well, so lots of footy, lots of basketball, but I think he does love the netball. He’s driven me around when I was younger, he’s come to training, he’s flown around the world to watch me play, which is pretty cool. So, he’s always there in the stands, which is great. One of the biggest challenges for me, when I was younger, was missing out on my first under 17s New South Wales team. It really hurt. I was in the squad of 14 and they picked a team of 12, and they read the read the team out in front of everyone. So, it really hurt, but to be honest, it was one of the best things that happened to me. It made me mentally, a lot stronger, and it made me realise exactly how hard I had to work, and when I did finally get that New South Wales dress, I was never going to take it for granted.
