Came with Serena
Favorite place to skate: Hood River
Favorite thing about skating: There’s no end! You can always keep improving
Hardest thing about skating: Skating with other people. Knowing other people are watching. Oh, and pop shuvits
One time, while skating, a little boy said “what kind of skating is that?” I was learning to pump. No one told the boy not to say that. The older boys don’t usually talk like that, but they take up space without even knowing it. They make it hard to be a beginner, to be a female beginner
When I was a kid, my mom wouldn’t let me skate. She said it was too dangerous. She wouldn’t have said this if I’d been a boy. If I’d been a boy, she couldn’t have stopped me.
