Beginning my passion
“I started skating when I was eight years old, which is actually quite late to start. I went to a public skate session every Saturday morning with my friend. I got better each week by teaching myself tricks I saw the older girls doing and one day a coach came to me and asked if I wanted lessons. With the lessons, I slowly progressed to mornings before school and then later, I was training every day. I became British Solo Ice Dance Champion in 2018 and 2019 and in that year, I took an opportunity to change skating disciplines. Switching to ice dancing, I began skating with a boy in London. The training was longer and I had to make the sacrifice to leave school so that I had more time. This is when I started homeschooling with Wolsey Hall.
“I found the transition between full time school and online school a bit challenging as I had to get used to a new way of learning but I adapted due to Wolsey Hall’s amazing resources.”
