Q. If you could give your past self advice, what would you say?
If I could give my younger self some advice it would be to take nothing for granted. To be grateful for all the wins in life and competition, big or small, and to not get too focused looking forward or back but to be present and grateful for where I am right now.
Q. Where do you see yourself in five years?
In five years I hope to have competed in the Olympic Games. Also to be learning and passing on what I know about my sport.
Q. What is your favourite thing about what you do and why?
My favourite thing about my athletic career is the opportunity it gives me to grow and push myself to get better at something I love.
Q. Do you have a mantra or phrase you live by? What is it?
I wouldn’t say I have a mantra, but I try to remind myself to be thankful for every day I get to spend with the people I love and I try to fit in as much of that time as possible, as well as being grateful that I am fortunate enough to pursue things I am passionate about.
Q. What keeps you motivated on a daily basis?
Something that keeps me motivated is setting small goals throughout the day and week, so at the end of the day, I know that I did something to improve myself.
