Lily


Age: 11 Hometown: Millersville, Pa. Home club: Red Rose FSC Level: Preliminary freestyle How often I skate: Five days a week

Favorite skaters: Johnny Weir, Ashley Wagner, Joan- nie Rochette, Sasha Cohen


Favorite moves: Biellmann, hydroblade, broken leg spin and Axel


How I got started: Since my mom was born in Canada, where everyone skates, my parents enrolled me in a learn- to-skate program so I could keep up with the Canadian kids when we visited my family. When my grandpa, a former hockey player, was battling lung cancer, he bought me my first real pair of skates from a sport shop in Québec with a gift certificate he knew he would never have the opportu- nity to use. I have been skating with his blessing ever since.


Goals: Before I graduate high school, I would like to pass my senior moves-in-the-field and free skate tests and land a double Axel.


What else you should know about me: I love to read and go to school; I even skipped second grade! My favorite sub- jects are English, French, theater and orchestra. I play the violin and also love to sing and act. I especially enjoy per- forming artistic and showcase numbers at skating competi- tions. I am testing for my black belt in Tang Soo Do karate this spring.


My favorite skating moments: My favorite skating experi- ence was successfully auditioning for Johnny Weir to earn a “step-out” role in “Holiday Dreams on Ice,” a professional skating show on Dec. 23, 2011, in Philadelphia. I performed a hydroblade, layback and sit spin under spotlights and got to meet Johnny Weir, Ashley Wagner, Brandon Mroz and Armin Mahbanoozadeh. My most memorable com- petition was striking gold at the State Games of America in San Diego.
