I was a tomboy who liked to play rough just like my two older brothers. That’s probably why I liked the athletic part of skating – especially the jumping!
My parents never pressured me to skate. They always said I could quit if I wanted to. They only expected me to skate when they had already paid for the expensive lessons. But, otherwise they said I could do what I wanted to do.

Sometimes it was difficult to make friends and be social in school because I was always practicing while other kids were getting together and doing things. But it just made me closer to my family, and I realized that they would always be there no matter what.
But it seems that the judging maybe they shouldn’t at least see the practices all week long. That can taint the way they go into the judging and the outlook of what’s going to happen, instead of just watching those four minutes and judging on those minutes alone.
