A year ago I could not skate at all. I had no balance, technique or understanding of the sport. However, a year on I have made so much progress and I’m proud of what I have achieved. I have completed Grades 1-8 of SkateUK and hope to pass Grades 9 & 10 in the next few months. Then I can move on to Bronze figure skating! I’m so happy to be able to ice skate, it makes me feel free.
I feel so lucky to have met so many nice people at the rink, and I now feel like I belong with my skating family.
