IN OUR WORDS

If I wasn't a figure skater ... (Pacini) I would probably have a social life!

I look up to ... (Fields) everyone ... I'm 4-11. Seriously, I look up to my Mom, Dad and Douglas Razzano for their strong work ethics.
... (Pacini) my dad more than anyone. He's the best role model a son could ever ask to have.

My favorite thing about being a figure skater is ... (Pacini) that moment of satisfaction when all the hours of hard work have paid off.

I started skating because ... (Fields) I wanted to play hockey.
... (Pacini) because I had a knee injury from overuse in soccer and gymnastics, so I took up a different, "non-impact" sport ... Oh, how naive I was!

My figure skating hero is ... (Pacini) Ryan Bradley, the best performer of all time (minus Scott Hamilton, of course).

After I'm done skating, I want to ... (Fields) get a medical degree.
... (Pacini) work on the forefront of modern scientific research and/or open up a bakery at the base of a Canadian ski resort.

My hobbies are ... (Pacini) well, my main hobby is skiing. I would ski every day if I could. The others include golf, frisbee golf, tennis, swimming, soccer, gymnastics, underwater basket weaving, hiking, fireworks and photography.

Something most people don't know about me is ... (Pacini) that I have never used anything other than rental skates since I started skating (just kidding). I wish I had something cool to say here but I don't.

I always ... (Pacini) tie and untie my skates 14 times, followed by a quick jog around the rink counterclockwise then clockwise, after which I visualize myself as a penguin gliding across the ice and finish with a nice loud "Hoorah!" (again, just kidding - I don't have anything fun to put here either).
