Why did you start figure skating? 

– My mom wanted me to learn how to skate. I joined the ice skating school and continued.

Why do you like to skate?

– It’s a fantastic feeling. You can be on the ice and feel that you can do a lot of stuff. And it’s a great feeling when you manage jumps.

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

– I’m pretty good at everything. I usually skate well to the music.

What do you need to improve?

– The pirouettes and the jumps. In the pirouettes I want to spin faster and do nice positions. I also want to learn new more complicated jumps.

Who are your figure skating role models? 

– Javier Fernandez is really good. He’s good at everything.

What do you think about when you’re competing?

– I usually just let my body do what I know it can do.

And what do you think about after a competition? 

– Sometimes I get annoyed by the things i didn’t manage, but I also think about what I did well.

How would your friends describe you?

– I’d say they mostly say that I’m nice and caring.

What do you like to do on your spare time?

– I like playing games on my phone. I also enjoy a lot of other sports, like soccer, basketball and table tennis.

What are you like in the class room? 

– I can be a bit chatty sometimes. But I always get everything done. So I can concentrate even if I speak a lot.

What are your goals with figure skating? 

– To become as good as I can be. Eventually, of course, I want to be in the championships.

How are you going to get there?

-Practice, practice, practice. Fight with everything I’ve got, basically doing everything I can to make it work.
