Favorite quote:

  • "No Pain No Gain"


If you could, what would you do to help make the world better and why?

  • If I could I would spread out all of our resources evenly throughout the world because we have enough to go around, but in Canada and the States and Europe, we are very selfish and needy people.


What has been your greatest moment in life so far, athletically and non-athletically?

  • Greatest moment athletically: to be honest I could not tell you I have so many moments that I want to remember that were awesome. I guess if I could peg it down to one moment it would have to be grade 11 club year when we got third at provincials and then 11 at nationals.
  • Greatest moment non-athletically: another hard one, I have so many great memories from my life and its really hard to pick a favourite. Hmm, I guess if I had to pick I'd say it was the day I got my first car. I remember I was so excited and so nervous.


Who are 5 famous people that you would like to spend a day with, dead or alive?

  • Definitely Micheal Jackson, Einstein, Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and Kiera Knightly


Best advice you have received? Best advice you would give someone?

  • Best advise received: "No matter where you are in life, don't change yourself to be someone you're not." – Mom
  • Best advise I'd give: "There is nothing wrong with liking junk food" :) and I guess "Remember that no matter what you o or where you end up in life, grab every opportunity because regret should not take happiness' place."


What Bible verse have you been most impacted by and why?

  • Ephesians 6: 10-17 Armer of God: This has been my greatest influence because it reminds me every day of how to live my life the way God intended me to live.


What is your career ambition?

  • I honestly have no idea as to what I want to do with my life. I am currently pursuing psychology in the justice field, but even that is a vague plan. I know I want to help people with whatever I do.


Who has been the biggest influence in your life and why?

  • I'd have to say it is my mom. She always pushed me into things I was uncertain about and in the end I can't thank her enough for doing that, though at the time it may annoy me to no end.
