We caught up with Jade and asked if she could shine a light on her personal journey in the world of boxing.
My first year as a junior I won my first national title at 54kg. in those 2 years at Bradford College I made my first international debut for England V France, from then I boxed in Serbia, made the England youth boxing team, won bronze in the youth champships, boxed in Ireland, Hungary, Bulgaria, and then sweaden for the EM.
I won a bronze in the Europeans, bronze in Bulgaria.
I got best sports women for NE Derbyshire, and was a finalist at the Bradford sports awards. i moved down my weight category from 54 to 51 kg, made the senior England team,won the Derbyshire challenge belt for my first senior bout, won silvers in the Elite championships and British championships, then I won the English title belt.
I also got called up for GB assessments. I'm a qualified level 1 boxing coach, and got a leadership badge.
I'm very grateful for the coaching I have had put in to me over these past 2 years from Mally and my club Chesterfield ABC. Next year I'll be doing my gym instructors course.
We think that you have an amazing future ahead Jade and we wish you all the best, Team Cahoonas.
