Education: 8th grade - Home schooled – Alpha Omega Academy. Personal Information: I am 14 years old and I LOVE TO SKATE. I get up at 6 am almost everyday so that I can train. My training includes on-ice training, on-ice choreography, ballet, fitness and strength workouts, and running. It is a seven-day-a week routine. It is a lot of work, but I really enjoy it. I have learned so much about dedication, hard work, commitment, and goal setting. My favorite part of skating is the competitions. I really enjoy the thrill of skating before judges, family, and friends. I am now home schooling. It has provided much more flexibility in scheduling additional travel, practice, and other activities, such as church. I am enjoying the home school program very much and continue to keep my A average. My family is very important to me. I have one younger brother and two older sisters. Both of my sisters are in college. My brother is 10 years old and very active in sports. I really enjoy watching him compete and cheering for him. We all try to travel together to my competitions. My parents, my sisters, and my brother are my BIGGEST fans. I really appreciate their support.
