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!
We’re on our way to Oakland, California for the Ice Dreams show with Johnny Weir! It will be great at see all my friends and Johnny! I’m skating to Let’s Get Loud! Come cheer us on, it will be an amazing show!
I just finished my second JGP in Zagreb, Croatia! After my short program I was in third place and in my long I pulled up to second! I was so excited to earn the silver medal for the second time this year and I had so much fun getting to know my team mates! Zagreb was a beautiful city and I am glad I got to sight see when I had a break from skating! Croatia was beautiful and another success!!
Off to Austria! I’m headed to the airport and I can’t wait for a week of fun! Good luck team USA!!
I’m so excited to get the opportunity to go to JGP Austria and represent Team USA!! I’ll make sure to keep you posted on how I do!
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.
