INSPIRE member of the month October 2023

Member of the Month – Alex B 🙂

Alex joined INSPIRE last November and has been attending for the past 12 months. She continues to enjoy INSPIRE especially because of all the different sports and activities they do.


Her favourite sport is badminton and is looking for a club which will be able to teach her more skills. Alex likes running, long walks and working in the gym. Her biggest challenge so far was in October 2022 when she set out to walk 100miles in a month for the charity MIND. She was successful and raised money for the charity.


Alex attended Brooklands College for 2 years and qualified as a chef, then covid hit and she decided to do another 2 years studying sport, so she is also a qualified personal trainer.

She is 20 years old and now attending St Mary’s University studying nutrition. This is a three-year course with lots of science involved which is challenging for her but she knows when her exams are and she prepares well.


She would like to work in a school as a catering assistant and then maybe have her own baking company with a stall at the farmers’ markets.

Alex works in a bakery near her home 3 days a week which is good experience for her future plans. She has been driving for the last three years and now owns her own car.

Food and Fun 🙂 

Alex is a vegetarian and enjoys eating pizza and pasta, Indian and Chinese food.

She likes to spend her money on clothes, and she enjoys watching comedy on tv such as Ghosts, Simpsons, and South Park. She has two older brothers and lives a very busy life.
