Philosophy / Motto
"From a young age I've always loved gymnastics, but it became more than just a sport to me. I've continued to train day after day and it has taught me many life skills: patience, commitment, dedication, respect, time management. It's also helped me to build up my confidence and self-esteem, all reasons why gymnastics is so important to me. Without these qualities that gymnastics has taught me, I don't know what I would be doing." (gymnasticsnz.com, 12 Jul 2018)
