Why do you like to go skiing?

– Because it’s fun, and because there’s always something to work on.

How did you get started?

“My big sister went. I followed a few times, thought it looked fun and remained.

What role models do you have in artwork?

– Javier Fernandez and Patrick Chan. They always make a good show and are good at jumping.

What do you think you are good at in terms of art workouts?

– Hmm. It’s hard to say what you’re good at. But maybe hope?

What do you need to be better at?

“I need to improve the piruettes, and get more vigilance. Then I want to get better on my expression and to do the choreography of my programs.

What is your goal?

“I want to do as well as I can at every competition. Then I’ll see how far the art of shooting takes me.

When did you start to understand that you are a really good figure skater?

“It was this summer when I started to put the triple jump a bit better. They became safer, simply.

What did you do in your spare time if you did not go skiing?

“Then I might have been doing bandy or ice hockey instead.
