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.

WEmily R Member of the Month Dec 21Inspire Sport Kingston

I have been a member of INSPIRE SPORT KINGSTON for 6 years. I continue to attend because I like doing all the different sports and I have made lots of friends there as well as enjoying teasing Chris.

I really enjoy doing lots of different sports cricket, football, tennis, horse riding, ballet and dance, parkour (free running) dressage. I originally started riding with a person walking beside me and my biggest challenge was to ride independently so as I grew in confidence and skill I had to listen to instructions, remember them and follow them through.

I was entered into dressage competition and came 4th in the National RDA in Hartbury as part of a team of 5 riders. We won the Disabled Team Sports awards for Epsom and Ewell. I also won the Jack Petchey award for most improved in her Parkour group.

I enjoy going to TAG youth club where I met my boyfriend Zion. I also sings in a choir OKMT where I am practising Christmas carols. I am very active and only have one day per week when I’m not singing, dancing, riding, playing tennis or going to INSPIRE.

I love chocolate and Chinese food, watching Eastenders and Love Trap. I attended a comedy night at TAG where I had a glass of wine and KFC it was fun.

I am in my final year at Richard Challenor school and hope to move on to Orpheus where I will be able to follow my dream of becoming a pop singer. My favourite singers are Zara Larsen Anne Marie and KS1.
