Explain the feeling you had the first time you put on skates.
I was 5 years old and from what I can remember it took some time to learn. I really started to enjoy skating around the age of 14. I was skating often with a friend and sometimes with other friends from the institute; we helped out each other to develop our skills.

What is your inspiration to keep skating?
I skate because it makes me feel free and I don't think about anything. It also helps me to disconnect.

We truly believe skating makes a better world. How do you think skating makes the world a better place?
I don't know any sad skaters, because it creates happiness and keeps you positive. That helps make the world a better place. It is not just a sport, it is a means of transportation, it is spending time with friends, or disconnecting yourself. You see the world from a better perspective.

How do you keep progressing and reinventing yourself?
Giving all the best of me. Skating has given me everything and is a part of me. Everything starts with a dream and with effort you see how it comes true. Knowing people like you who end up being your guides and especially friends. All of this helps you to continue moving forward and is like a training in this lifestyle.

What’s the most helpful tip you want to share with any skater?
Everyone has a learning curve, so don't be frustrated. Be patient. And bend your legs more! hahaha

Imagine a world filled with animals who can skate. If you could be any of those animals what would you be and why?
A wolf. I love them!
Wolves usually go in small packs like me when I skate.
