    "Despite only having skated competitively for 2 years, I was selected as a member of the MajesticIce Australia Junior Team, the current national champions. As a self-confessed skating nerd, I am always up to date with the latest ISU communications, even going so far as to read the entire ISU Constitution and General Regulations while on holidays. I currently have my Level 0 Coaching Accreditation and am hoping to one day coach a synchro team. While I know it isn't very realistic, I have aspirations to be part of the ISU in some capacity, as I have a fascination with how the sport works from its most fundamental level. I am also currently in my final year of High School and am aiming to study Chemistry and Law at university next year, but always find time for skating in-between the study (even watching the Winter Olympics under my desk during class) as it is easily one of the best parts of my life. "


    What does synchronized skating mean to you?

    "Synchro is a family, it's a community and a promise and a challenge, an amplification of everything that's great about skating because you have people to share it with. "
