What does being part of CAN Fund mean to you?
I am excited to be a part of CAN Fund because I love everything they do and stand for. I know how much it meant to me to receive support from CAN Fund and now I have an opportunity to help get funding for many other athletes around the county!

What is the best advice you ever received?
My coach in university used to say that champions are made when no one is watching. His advice was to always work hard behind the scenes because that is what will help us the most to reach our goals. 

Biggest lesson you have learned to get to where you are today?
I have learned that there is always another level we can push to. When you think you have hit your limit and you try to keep going, you will move your limit higher! 

Why are you proud to be Canadian?
Canada is a beautiful country filled with kind, passionate, and inspiring people! Being able to compete with a maple leaf on my chest and represent Canada is a huge honour. I feel like I have the opportunity to achieve anything I set my mind to in Canada. Canadians are loved worldwide!
