SARAH Ingham could not be prouder of her daughter Chloe and the help she has received from her friends.

The 14-year-old has mild autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Having done gymnastics for some years, she felt her passion lay elsewhere.

Since then she has won and placed in several state and national cheerleading competitions performing solo and group routines.

Recently she was nominated for 2017 Cheer Choice Award Polls.

Mrs Ingham said since cheerleading she had seen a transformation in her daughter’s outlook.

“She started in 2015 and has been here training pretty much every day since,” she said.

“It’s like she is a completely different person, the cheerleading has been great for her.

“Her team is like an extended family.”

Chloe shares her skills with others and has taken on training younger team members.

She is also on four different teams with her cheerleading club.

“One day I would like to have my own cheerleading place,” said Chloe.

“I started with TNT then moved to Toxic.

“Doing this makes me happy and healthy.

“My focus now is to go to world championships and do more coaching of people like me.”
