She was born was born in 1991 on the 10th March(aged 25). She takes part in 100m sprint, 400m sprint and the 4x100m relay in athletics. Kadeena also takes part in the C4 cycling category. Her coaches are Paula Dunn and Brian Scobie. She was born in Leeds and went to the primary school called Bracken Edge. She went to Wetherby High school before going to Manchester Metropolitan University to studying Physiotherapy. She got a Gold in 400m and Bronze in 100m. She won in 2016 Paralympic C4-5 500m time trials. She came into our school last year and showed us all of her wonderful medals. I was lucky enough to get chose to hold one of her medals in a photo with her!

She can inspire children in the classroom so that they can be resilient in all of their work so that they don’t give up. In a maths question for example. If you can’t do it first then you try think of the method that you have to do to get that question correct. It can also inspire you in P.E. if you like something you are good at, some day you could be a Paralympian.
