After her nan had a ‘stern word’ with her about her poor attendance at school, Daisy set her sights on the Foundation’s BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma course. This motivated her to knuckle down and work hard in order to complete her GCSEs, going on to achieve great results including four A*s.

The seventeen year old is now predicted to achieve a Distinction in her Extended Diploma with the Foundation, Daisy shared her ambition of becoming a PE teacher one day:

“From here, I want to go to university and get into teaching. I want to be a PE teacher and continue life with football.”

Three years ago, Daisy represented Wales at a junior level but had to stop as she couldn’t attend the training sessions. However, she did not view this as a setback, instead Daisy used this as motivation to train harder and is now playing for Wales Women's Under 19s.

One day Daisy hopes to gain a full Welsh cap, she currently has her sights set on selection for the Wales Women’s First Team squad who travel to Kazakhstan in October for a European Championship qualifier.

Aside from being an extremely talented athlete, Daisy is also a very social person and gets on with everyone on the course, including the coaches. Daisy said:

“They’re a laugh and you can have a bit of banter with them. My futsal coach Paul has been great. When I’ve had my down moments Paul knows I can do better and motivates me in the best way possible. He understands people and their individual needs and has helped a lot of us girls.”

Daisy believes her teamwork and dedication has also improved since joining the course, and she enjoys the satisfaction of achieving the high goals which she sets herself.

When asked if she would recommend the course to others, Daisy happily added:

“I would definitely recommend this course to others. It’s a great course and something which I look forward to everyday. There’s not a day when I don’t look forward to coming in.”
