Book Chapter

In this short chapter, Rosabelle, one of the project participants, writes a personal story about how sport had a hugely positive impact on her self-confidence, body image and ultimately her sense of sexuality. Rosabelle’s personal narrative is co-written with one of the researchers, who provides theoretical insights relevant to conceptualising and making sense of her experience.
