My Idol- NZL

The person I look up to is Sophie Pascoe

Sophie Pascoe is a New Zealand Para-Swimmer. She has represented New Zealand three times at the Summer Paralympic Games. Sophie was accidentally ran over by her dad on the ride on lawnmower, which resulted in both of her legs going under the blade. Her left leg was amputated below the knee, while her right leg was left with severe scarring. 

I love to swim and I have gone to swim meets over in Christchurch and Blenheim. I would love to go to bigger meets around the South Island like Sophie Pascoe did.

I would love to meet Sophie Pascoe or get her signature. We both share the same interests in competitive swimming.
