This year Midwestern Sectionals are being held at my home rink and I couldn’t be more excited for them to finally begin! I have watched my usually figure skating and hockey rink get transformed into a competition rink and it looks great! My training has been going really well and I am ready to compete! The short is Friday and the long is Saturday!! My little sister Braedyn, who is 12, competed today in the juvenile ladies event. She was amazing and I couldn’t be prouder! Also, two of my great friends Mariah Bell and Barbie Long are competing this weekend and I am excited to see them! It should be an amazing and busy week! Wish me luck! (Attached is a picture of Braedyn and I)
This spring has been very busy. I participated and had an amazing time at the Ice Dreams show in California. The cast included Johnny Weir, Max Aaron, Samantha Cesario, Polina Edmunds, Richard Dornbush, and Jason Brown. We all put on a great show and I loved spending time with the cast. Some of the other skaters and l even got to visit the beach, it was beautiful! I attached some pictures of my experience at the show, I hope you enjoy them.
Also, last weekend I competed at the Grand Rapids Open. I was very excited to debut my programs and get feedback. My short program music is Firebird by Igor Stravinsky and my long program music is Primavera by Ludovico Einaudi. I used Grand Rapids as my competition readiness for internationals. I love how my programs are turning out and I got some great feedback over the weekend!
I can’t wait to compete in Colorado Springs in two weeks! I have started training harder and I can’t wait to perform my programs for the first time.
