fUTURE gOALS

"Medals will come and go, but at the end of the day it is the road trips, the laughs, the training, the memories and experiences that truly matter. When it is all said and done my greatest judo memory and achievement will be passing on my knowledge and creating opportunity for the next generation of Judoka. Changing lives will ALWAYS trump personal ambition. I just want to give to these children what Judo has given to me."

Any favorite Judo moments?

** Oh so many! One year in particular I was able to qualify for the Canada Winter Games and Jr. Nationals and competed for a medal at both events. I did not come out on top in these contests but this was a big boost in confidence for me as an inexperienced competitor from New Brunswick and really set me on a path to continue training hard and improving!

 

** I was very proud of qualifying for back to back Int. Francophone Games events which are held every 4 years. Not only was this a big step up in competition and experience for me, it was also a good reflection of my longevity and dedication in a very competitive sport.
