WHAT MOMENT DO YOU SKI FOR?
I ski for having fun, I enjoy ripping turns better (and faster) every time
HOW DO YOU RECHARGE YOUR BATTERIES FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE?
I sleep a lot. But also watch movies, spend time home with friends.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE? WHY DOES THIS QUOTE RESONATE WITH YOU?
It’s a quote of tennis legend Serena Williams: “pressure is a privilege”. I think that’s right!
HOW DO YOU CONQUER DIFFICULT SITUATIONS?
I’m figuring it out…
WHAT SACRIFICES HAVE YOU HAD TO MAKE TO GET TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY AND WERE THEY WORTH IT?
Having less opportunities to hang around with friends. But I’m gonna find time time for that. Yes, of course, I know that for moving forward you need to dedicate and sometimes do sacrifices.
HOW DOES YOUR MINDSET (OR ATTITUDE) INFLUENCE YOUR PERFORMANCE?
I feel lucky to ski quite consistently, not getting much influenced by different mindsets
WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT SKIING?
Mainly studying, as I am attending high school. For hobbies, I like travelling, photography, practising outdoor sports like ice skating and tennis, and playing piano.
WHAT STRATEGY DO YOU USE TO OVERCOME PRESSURE AND STRESS FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE?
I find comfort in persons and even objects, close and familiar to me.
