Why did you start figure skating?

– I saw figure skating on TV when I was little. I have always loved trying new sports, but as I’ve grown older, I’ve had to focus on fewer things. In the end, figure skating was the only thing left that I wanted to keep up with.

What sports did you not continue with?

– Indoor bandy, dancing, swimming, and gymnastics, for example.

Why do you like to skate?

– I love the feeling of being on the ice, where you can always develop something. Then of course I love the feeling you get when when you succeed in something that you have been working for a long time.

In your opinion, what are your best qualities within figure skating?

– Steps are my best thing. I’ve got a lot of help from good coaches to get well on it. And I’ve always loved skating.

What do you need to improve?

– I’d say anything, but mostly the jumps.

Who are your figure skating role models?

– Viktoria Helgesson, because she skates to beautifully and for having such a great personality. And the American Gracie Gold. She has it all, everything looks like one single movement when she skates.

How would your friends describe you?

– Ambitious, happy and helpful.

What do you like to do on your spare time?

– I enjoy being with my friends, shopping and drawing.

What are you like in the class room?

– I’m very active. I like to talk and to participate in discussions.

What do you think about when you’re competing? 

– I usually think about having fun and doing the best i can do today.

How do you handle a setback?

– I think back about what i need to improve and then i try to work on it. Setbacks can only make you better.

What are your goals with figure skating? 

– I want to be a role model for other skaters and become as good as i can be.

How are you going to get there?

– I’ll continue working for it. And i’ll hold on to my love for the sport.
