I am from Everett, Washington and am currently an 8th grade student at Gateway Middle School. Growing up, gymnastics has always played a major role in my life. My mom was a gymnast as a child and as an adult began working at LEGA. Throughout the fourteen years of my life, twelve of them have been spent here at Leading Edge learning and growing not only as a gymnast, but a person overall. Having competed on our JO competitive team as a level three and four and training as a Gold in XCEL, I have accommodated many life skills, such as, integrity, honesty, perseverance, and teamwork. I have learned to set and strive to achieve goals; whether or not they are an easy task. I believe that every child is capable of achieving greatness, and learning that hard work truly pays off. Now I am recreational coach here at Leading Edge and am able to positively influence children. I hope to teach them the character traits I learned and if not more! Thank you for helping LEGA remain a positive, safe place to learn and prosper.
