What are your words to live by or your motto?
You can continue to learn (get an education) and work (get a job) later on in life, but you won’t always have the opportunity or ability to play sport (at a high level), so do it now while you can.
When was the moment you knew you wanted to represent Canada?
My answer to the question “what do you want to be when you grow up?” was always answered with: to be a professional athlete. Therefore, from as long as I could remember I wanted to represent Canada in sport.
Best advice you have received?
There is a lot you cannot control. Don’t waste time thinking about or worrying about things you cannot control. Sometimes you can only control your behavior or attitude about a situation, and the effort you put in and how you prepare.
