Hi, My name is Bex and I live on a farm, just outside of London, in England.
I have a great love for all animals, but especially horses. On weekends, you can find me spending time in my cottage garden, walking my border terrier (Boudicca), exercising my two horses (Flynt and Darcey) or entertaining my five Indian runner ducks (Pesto, Puddles, Freckles, Genevieve and Jemima).
Nature and the outdoors are at the core of my happiness, I was lucky enough to grow up spending my childhood summers walking and exploring the mountains of the Lake District and Scotland.
I tackle life with a 'can do' attitude, nothing is impossible with teamwork, dedication and patience!
I am so excited to be joining the Camp Carolina Team!

What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?:

Overcoming dyslexia. Being able to channel my neurodiversity into my biggest strength, and not allow it to be a weakness or ever hold me back from a goal.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?:

My favorite sport is horse riding, particularly show jumping and equine mounted games. My other hobbies include riflery, netball, acting, singing and dancing. In addition, I have spent the past three years with a University Officer Training Corps (UOTC), conducting basic military training, field first aid, captaining two sports teams and traveling the world with adventurous training, such as skiing, rock climbing, water sports and mountain biking to name a few.
What is your favorite thing about working with children?:

No two days are the same. The gratification you get from helping children to step safely outside of their comfort zone, to achieve their individual goals and concur something they deemed unattainable is a feeling like no other. Seeing the world through these imaginative eyes brings out my inner child, helping to live with curiosity and open-mindedness.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?:

Being a strong female role model. In addition to the fabulous male role models at camp, allowing the boys to see all types of women from around the world lead and teach to a high level in their chosen activity, is vital in helping to develop their morals and principles going forward into society. I also have a very strong maternal side (channeling my inner Marry Poppins) if any of the campers were homesick, needed someone to talk to, or to read a bedtime story, I would hope to be the counsellor they would turn to.
What goal or camp philosophy do you want your campers to learn this summer?:

To live in the moment. To have as much fun as possible, whilst maintaining safety, compassion, kindness, and a gentlemanly manner - to contribute to having the best summer yet!
