REASON FOR TAKING UP THE SPORT
I got my first kayak (a Jackson Kayak Fun 1) at the age of four. My parents were kayakers and so it was only fitting that I tagged along too! I was always scared of the water and I didn't really fall in love with the sport until I was 11. But once I conquered my fears of flipping upside down, I caught the bug and have been obsessed with progressing my freestyle ever since!

AMBITIONS
Building a career and a life that supports my passion for kayaking! My sights are set on landing and perfecting the trophy 2s in the short future! And after that, I hope to continue to have fun and see just how far I can progress my paddling!
