monk-aa096-cropMy journey to the Rio Paralympics was both long and challenging.

Over this journey, spanning almost a decade, I feel as if I have experienced many things that the ordinary person may not.

I love to share my experiences with other people, inspiring and educating them, whilst learning about my journey.

Over the course of my career as an athlete I believe I have picked up traits and qualities that have contributed to my success.


My ethos is that anybody can achieve their dreams, nobody is born successful, you must work for what you want. Matt Wylie
