Sport specific information
When and where did you begin this sport?
She began swimming in 2004. She left the sport for several years due to her law studies, but returned to training in 2016.
Why this sport?
She initially took up Para athletics but was encouraged to switch to Para swimming by her teacher. She decided to pursue it, because it seemed easier for her to train alone without an assistant. She was inspired to restart the sport by the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and she resumed her training after passing a bar exam.
