If I wasn't a figure skater ... I would be a gymnast
My favorite thing about being a figure skater is ... how it makes me feel like I’m flying!
I look up to ... Tenley Albright. She’s done it all and is nevertheless so humble.
After I'm done skating, I want to ... be a doctor.
My figure skating hero(s) are ... Michelle Kwan and Yuna Kim
I always ... like traveling, jewelry making, poetry, biology, and walking around with friends on Newbury Street in Boston
Something most people don't know about me is ... that I love brussel sprouts
