Hi, my name is Martha Newell and I love skiing. I am 13 years old.
I had my first ski lesson when i was six years old and loved it straight away. We went on yearly ski holidays with my family and when I was 9 years old I saw a group of kids in an Austrian ski race team and I knew that was what I wanted to do.
As soon as I came home from that holiday, I joined the ski club at my local ski centre in Gloucester. I couldn’t ski parallel when I first started aged 10. However 3 years later I am now on the Welsh Ski development squad and the National Schools ski team. I came 2nd in the UK at the British Dry Slope Championships.
I have improved so much since I started and I hope to continue improving. I am going away in the winter to train & race with the British Ski Academy for over two months. I am hoping this will improve my skiing further. I would love to one day join the GB ski squad and possibly go to the olympics. This has always been a dream of mine.
Thank you so much CASS & friends for the support.
