What is your coach always having to remind you?
My coach is always reminding me too straighten my knee’s and point my toes during acro skills. Another thing that my coach reminds me is to watch my weight.
What is your proudest moment?
My proudest moment is competing at the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi. This is my proudest moment because it is the biggest competition that I have ever competed in and also because I got to represent my country and make my parents proud. Other than that, when my friends and family found out that I was competing everyone gave me words of encouragement and wished me luck. They also watched me compete on TV.
If you could have the career of any other gymnast, who would it be?
It would be Nastia Liukin because she is an Olympic winner and it is my dream to go to the Olympics.
What makes gymnastics different from other sports?
I think gymnastics is a much more challenging sport and you have to be very focused and brave. What other sport needs you to propel yourself in the air and be graceful and strong?
