Hey! Welcome to my blog!
Hi, My name is Rebecca and I am a 16-year-old Olympic hopeful! Ever since I stepped foot on the ice I knew my dream was to go to the Olympics. From then on I have been chasing my Olympic dreams with determination, passion, and excitement! It has been a wild ride but I am living for the adventure. I cant wait to see what the future holds!
I started skating after watching the 2014 Olympics on TV. Once I got enrolled into a learn to skate program, I was hooked. I never wanted to leave the ice and always looked forward to my sessions. Soon I got skating more and more and my passion for the sport just grew even bigger!
I competed in freestyle for around 6 years. Learning all the way up to a double axel, I had a great time competing and learning new jumps with my friends. I even moved out to Colorado to further my training. But after a while, I realized freestyle was not what I wanted to pursue in skating.
After questioning freestyle being my main focus in skating, I started to dabble in ice dance and competed in solo dance for 1 season. I made it all the way to Solo Dance Nationals (which you can read about here) and I had such a good time. After that season I decided I wanted to try ice dancing with a partner. It was going to be a big change but I had faith in my decision. Switching to ice dance was challenging but I now have a partner and I am so excited to see where my ice dancing will take me.
Through this blog, I hope I can share some of my adventures with you and maybe inspire you to make big goals, jump out of your comfort zone, and explore new things. The first step to success is believing in yourself, so go dream big and achieve all those goals! You got this!
So as I chase my Olympic dreams full speed ahead, I hope you’ll join me on this crazy journey!
