17 years old/11th grade
What I like to do in my free time: I like to spend time with my family and friends, listen to music, watch TV and movies, cook, and clean.
Why I want to be junior rep: I want to be able to interact and plan fun activities for everyone at the rink and set a good example for all the younger kids. I have been skating for a long time and have seen how all our previous junior reps were able to act as a role model and spread positivity towards everyone, which is something I want to do.
Things I would do as Junior Rep: As Junior Rep, I would plan fun events for everyone and make sure to ask everyone’s opinions on what would make a good event. I would also make sure that everyone feels included and that they know that they’re always welcome join in. I also want to make sure everyone’s mental health is taken care of, as skating is a very competitive sport and a lot of skaters compare themselves to others. I want to make sure everyone feels comfortable working on what they’re working on without thinking they’re not good enough, and I especially want to emphasize this with younger kids. As junior rep, my main goal is for everyone to have fun and for them to genuinely enjoy skating.
