“I figure skate a couple times a week and, to be honest, I don’t do anything else. I started figure skating when I was about 2 years old, so I have been skating for about 13 years. I just like the community at the IceCube, which is where I skate, and making connections with all the skaters. I really like the fun of competing and meeting new people. I’m not necessarily super close with any of my friends there, but my coaches have kind of become my parents. I like hanging out with them a lot and their kids. I used to babysit their kids. So just getting to see how they interact with each other at home and what their family life is like. It’s just nice to see them in a different way.”
