What other Games have you competed in?In 2013, I participated in Track and Field with my team for Provincials in Toronto. I won 3 gold and 2 silver medals. In 2014,  I participated in Track and Field with the Ontario team in Vancouver for Nationals. I won 2 bronze. In October 2019, our Rhythmic Gymnastics team went to Oakville for a competition. I won 2 gold ribbons, 1 silver ribbon, and 1 bronze ribbon.
Best Special Olympics Memory:My most memorable sports accomplishment was when I was in Vancouver in 2014 for Nationals. I had recently sprained my ankle but still managed to win two bronze. The biggest thing was that my Nanny was there watching me. She passed away a few months later.
Hobbies and Activities:Listening to music, drawing, journaling, looking up inspirational quotes, spending time with my friends, watching T.V. with my mom.I am also in college for the CICE program! I love it and am doing very well in my classes.
Message to Sponsors:I would like to say THANK YOU to all the sponsors and supporters. Without you, we would not have the opportunity to participate in athletic competitions where we feel included. It gives us a chance to connect with others. We are able to show the world that even though we have disabilities of different kinds, we are just as capable of competing in sports like anyone else.
Thank you everyone and enjoy the Games!
