Macey is just 13 years old, and lives in Harlow. She has joined the Find Your Active family, in hope that she can inspire other young people to find an activity that is right for them and meet lots of new friends. Macey says:
“My physical activity journey started when I was 5 years old. I began by doing judo and I even competed in international competitions. When I reached 8 years old I started gymnastics at primary school and I loved it. I decided to take up competitive gymnastics, winning various County medals, making regional finals and I gained the title of county vault champion. I even had the privilege to compete in Malta. For my sporting success, I was invited to the Houses of Parliament by Robert Halfon MP and I was a finalist for Harlow’s Young Sport Personality of the Year.
I love gymnastics but as I have got older, I have developed a passion for football too. I have now signed to play football for Bishop’s Stortford Football Club. I cannot wait for another year of sport and activity. I want to inspire others to get moving and enjoy being active too, regardless of age or ability. It’s fun and a great way to make new friends. Being active helps me in many ways and it would be amazing for others to have this opportunity. If you love a sport, why not give it a go. This is why I am grateful for the opportunity to be a Find Your Active Ambassador.”
