Age: 14

Grade: 9

Favorite colour: Yellow

Favorite food: Nutella

Something I am proud of: Training and competing in BC for a year last year while living with my coaches.

Who I look up to: Missy Franklin & my Mom

Hobbies: Competitive swimming, snowboarding, listening to music

My pet peeve: Feet

What makes me a Genuinely Unique Girl: What makes me a genuinely unique girl is my passion for swimming and the sacrifices and opportunities it has brought. Training morning (like, 5:00am!) and night means living a limited social life, but I have been so lucky to have travelled and competed across the country, and I’ve met so many other people and made many friends who motivate me. It’s hard sometimes not having a lot of time for everything I want to do, but I know it’s worth it, and I hope to be part of the Olympic Team one day!
