Describe a highlight moment from your 2018 IFSA season.

I landed a 360 in a competition getting first place at Kimberley! Also I came back from a 4th place qualifying to first after doing the “Rock Ride” at Lake Louise!

Biking, hiking and playing basically any sport. I also like to read books and of course, eat food.

My faith in God, Food, Family and Friends.

What would you like to see change in the world and how can you make it happen?

Make the world a more kind and selfless space starting with myself.

I'm left handed.
