Goals: To pass the preliminary moves-in-the-fi eld test this summer and to get my sit spin.


How I got started: I asked my parents if I could take a skating class when I was 5 years old. I skated really slowly at fi rst because I did not want to fall down. Then I participated in the ice show at my rink and learned that I loved to perform and skate in front of people. I joined a synchronized team and started competing individually the next year. This year, I started skating pairs with a boy at my rink and it is so fun! We have already learned to do two lifts.


Memorable moment: The fi rst time I competed in an interpretive event was at the Freestyle 2 level. I was so nervous because I had never heard the song before. I got fi rst place and was so excited.


What else you should know about me: I have a baby brother, Asher, who is 1 year old. He is so cute and even knows how to clap for me.


Favorites Food: Ice cream, strawberries, pizza


Hobbies: I spend a lot of time skating, but I also take ballet and tumbling. I participate in the YMCA Adventure Princesses with my dad and volunteer at Feed My Starving Children.


TV shows: “Good Luck Charlie,” “Shake It Up”


Band: One Direction
