“Hi, my name is Claire. I am most proud of the time I was asked to be a guest lecturer for a group of students studying PE teaching in UCC. I taught them all how to play bocce and how important inclusion is. I enjoy exercising, baking cakes and playing music. I am looking forward to the end of lockdown.”
