How has being a Canadian athlete allowed you to give back to your community?
It has allowed me to have real conversations with young girls about body image and purpose. I try to help end encourage girls to search for their purpose, and to help them see their potential, beauty and to discern the lies that world spews about body image.

How will the funding from CAN Fund impact your training?
The funding from CAN Fund will allow me to purchase some new equipment that I can learn and prepare to go really fast!
