Even when bad things happen you have to try to use those bad things in a positive manner and really just take the positive out of it.
It doesn't matter if you look different. You're still the same as everybody else because you have the same dream.
I say, 'If I'm able to go out there and achieve a dream, then anybody can do it.'
You have to work hard for what you want to achieve and you have to set goals and dreams and really go for them.

Going out there in the water, it feels as if there's nothing wrong with me.
I just want to be myself and go for my own dreams and goals.
I am always late because people stop me for autographs and say hi.

It's been a dream for me since I was six years old to go to the Olympic Games and to finally have that dream realised is something massive for me.
Once your dream is fulfilled you face another one.
I go out there and train as hard as anybody else.
I hate seaweed.
It is wonderful to say that your days behind a school desk are over. It's just another phase in your life.
