Brief history into your scouting career
I started out my scouting back when I was 11yrs old as a Cub at the 21st King’s Lynn Scout Group. I moved on to Scouts and Penguin Explorers. Progressing in confidence and self belief. I was a young leader at Cubs and Scouts. When I reached 18yrs old I became assistant scout leader at the 21st.
Within a year completing my adult leader training. After this I moved to Norwich for work. I don’t attend weekly meetings now but I help out whenever I can on Adventurous Activities.

Who inspires you and why?
I get most of my inspiration from people who push themselves to the absolute limit. And also people who head on danger to save many other people. My inspiration doesn’t come from celebrities but people doing great things.

If you were stuck on a desert island – what one of each of these would you take and why?
Book : How to survive on a Deserted Island by Tim O’Shei. It’s generally a good read and has many useful tips.

CD : X&Y Coldplay because it’s my favourite album and I wouldn’t be able to play it.

Camp Gadget : I would make a camp bed to sleep on away from the ground so I don’t get bitten as much.

Sweet : Multicoloured fizzy belts, because they are my favourites.

What are you most looking forward to in your new role?
I’m looking forward to supporting adventurous activities in this county and imparting my knowledge and experience in this area to help other people. If it wasn’t for scouting I wouldn’t be the same person I am today, Skills For Life. ”
