“I would like to become an instructor because I enjoy working with people and it is fulfilling seeing people's confidence grow as they learn more skills and can undertake new challenges on the snow. In particular, it is rewarding to work with and provide opportunities for DWA athletes to feel successful. My goal would be to specialise in working with DWA athletes and watching them reach their full potential.”
“I would love to be able to teach people and introduce them to a sport I love so that they can also share the passion I have for skiing. Being able to be the person that influences their first smile whilst skiing would be incredible. This scholarship would be the first step to achieving this dream as it provides the fundamental experience that will lead me to be able to become an instructor.“
