Short Biography:

I had started archery back in 2014 after seeing the Hunger Games. Specifically, the training scene where Katniss is shooting the holograms in Catching Fire had really driven my desire to shoot. After 3 years, I had shot my first international competition in Rosario, Argentina for the Youth World Championships where I had placed 5th. Since then, I have represented Canada in several international tournaments.

Outside of archery, I was a part of the French Immersion program throughout my primary and secondary school years. I had also taken Spanish in high school and currently learning Korean. I’m currently at the University of Waterloo studying Kinesiology as my undergrad. Kinesiology is the scientific study of movement of the human body. After this degree, I plan to study osteopathy to work with specifically sport and elite athletes.

Biggest Accomplishment:

My biggest accomplishment is when in 2018 I had won a spot for Canada for the Youth Olympics and then being able to attend and represent Canada at said event later that year.

Favorite Hobby other than sport:

During my spare time, I enjoy reading, playing piano, listening to music, and going through social media.
