I've been doing gymnastics since I could walk. I dove into competitive gymnastics at the age of 5 and haven't looked back since. Throughout my journey, I've achieved some pretty amazing milestones. In Level 5, I proudly ranked 3rd overall and took home 1st place on vault. As I progressed to Level 7, I became the provincial floor champion, and in Level 8, I secured 2nd place on beam at provincials. The excitement didn't stop there—I claimed the title of Level 9 provincial floor champion and even made it onto Team Ontario! Not only am I an accomplished gymnast, but I'm also a Level 9 judge, certified in competition level 1, and trained in trampoline foundations. My ultimate goal is to reach Level 10 before retiring, and I'm determined to make it happen. Gymnastics is my passion, and I'm thrilled to share my journey with you. Let's keep flipping, soaring, and reaching for the stars together!
