What inspires you the most? My parents for their hard work and dedication. If it hadn’t been for them, I would not be at the place I am today.
5 things you can’t live without: Good food, good kiting, my friends, my parents, and the ocean.
What other interests do you have? In addition to kiting, I also competitively swim. I also love photography and making videos from my travels.
What was your childhood dream? To be the best in the world at something and to become an Olympian. (Still working on the second one haha.)
