Explain the feeling you had the first time you put on skates.
I remember the first time I put my skates on. My coach held me by the hand, and I felt like I was so fast. My sister started before me so I just wanted to do the same as her. After my first attempt I knew I really wanted to skate again..
What is your inspiration to keep skating?
When I was a kid I was a huge fan of Cecilia Baena and Joey Mantia and then Clémence Halbout.
We truly believe skating makes a better world. How do you think skating makes the world a better place?
I'm really concerned about ecology and the environment. Skating is a good option for transportation inside a city ! You can go everywhere, faster and easier. It's also a good way to meet people and share a passion.
How do you keep progressing and reinventing yourself?
I keep progressing due to my determination, my sacrifice and all my training. I’m reinventing myself to try new things and meet new people.
What’s the most helpful tip you want to share with any skater?
With training anything is possible. As you continue to skate and get faster and better skills, also continue to skate for fun and to feel the freedom.
Imagine a world filled with animals who can skate. If you could be any of those animals what would you be and why?
This question is so hard, but I think I could be a cat, because they are very agile and can jump and make sprints.
