CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY AND HOW YOU GOT TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?
I started my cheer journey in 2015. I had no skills besides a front roll and a handstand. I was put on my gyms large junior 2 as a flyer. At first I struggled a lot, all the other flyers were extremely flexible and they were all experienced, unlike me who could barely pull a scorpion.
So in the summer everyday, I would work on my flexibility and balance for 1-2 hours until I was at my goal.
I got my needle before any other flyer on the team and when I got flexible, it inspired everyone else to be.
Once we all were flexible, my team was known across Canada for being “the team with needles”. We won almost every competition and won Canadian Cheer Evolution nationals.
In that season, I managed to go from a level one tumbler to a level 3-4 tumbler. Now I am on the two highest level teams in my gym and I am point flyer on my junior 3 team, which is the team with needles.
I can truly say that hard work does pay off!
