What is a personal goal you have for being a part of the Youth Advisory Council?
To learn how to effectively share my experiences to help inspire girls to join/stay in sport
What is your ideal way to move?
Cross Country Skiing! But I also love to cross-train by running and cycling
What is a quote that has made an impact on you?
A quote I find inspirational is “the grass is greener where you water it” because that reminds me that if I want to achieve something I simply need to put in the work to achieve it!
Name someone who inspires you and explain why
Kathrine Switzer inspires me because she was the first woman ever to run the Boston Marathon. She did this despite the fact that it was taboo and considered “unhealthy” for women to run long distances. But she signed up for the race and despite people grabbing her bib and trying to shove her out of the race she finished! And after that, she led a committee to get women official status in long-distance events. Kathrine inspires me because she paved the way for girls like me in endurance sport.
If you were on a deserted island, what three items would you bring with you to make you feel happy?
First off I love to eat, so I couldn’t go without my grandma’s pierogis. Second, I would like to have goggles so I could snorkel around in the ocean and finally, I would like to have my dog, Lucy, with me to keep me company!
