I just want to be like my big brother....

by Banana Crumble | Apr 30, 2018

A young girl who lost her legs due to meningitis at 5 months old has taken up Taekwondo because of her older brother’s inspiration. Maisie spent months watching her brother train, and after asking for many times whether she could join in she was eventually given the opportunity.

She says – “I just wanted to try it to be like him”

Since taking up the sport she has been accepted into the 2018 British Taekwondo GB National Para-Poomsae squad. What an achievement for someone so young.

Her mum said “Maisie doesn’t see herself being different. She is just a girl who wakes up and puts her legs on in the morning.”

Maisie you area true inspiration and are helping everyone to reach for their dreams.
