About Alison

Who or what made the biggest positive effect on you when you were studying? And how did they support you?

My parents had the biggest impact, particularly my dad he was a great role model and very supportive. He always had a positive outlook and although he gave critical feedback there was plenty of encouragement, especially at sporting events.

What working achievements or initiatives are you most proud of?

I am proud of the City & Guilds Certificate in Business and Administration that I studied for whilst also working full time.

If you could tell your younger self one thing, what would it be? 

Don’t be too hard on yourself all the time!  It’s good to be competitive but it’s also okay to lose sometimes too, it’s the taking part that counts.

What would it surprise people to know about you? 

I’m a bit of a fitness fanatic and like to try out new sports (I love a challenge).  I am working my way through Circus School, have learnt the Hoop and Aerial Silks and just have the Trapeze to attempt.

I also competed in my first National Fitness Games in September at Loughborough University, representing WomensHealth Magazine.
