How it started

I was probably the fastest young hockey player in my small town, without no motivation whatsoever to score any goals. A speed skating tryout, in which I was the only participant, led to my biggest passion. I still remember looking at the 2002 Olympic poster I hung in my closet. Winning at the highest level would become my lifelong dream.

How it grew

As a teenager, a movie ignited my imagination while I was away trying Long Track Skating in Calgary. Stoicism gave me a way of living, passing through difficult times being bullied.

-Be present. The obstacle is the way.-

Every year, I became a better, stronger version of myself. By 16 a first big step came along: being invited to the National Team. By 17, international medals were hung by my neck.

How I broke

Foolish of me thinking that this will be easy. Injuries and health problems came along the way. I was bullied by an organisation and a coach. Everything was toxic and I had to find a way out.

Unfortunately, the way out was retirement.

How I started over

04

After 4 years of living the life I wanted but didn't suit me, I started thinking: what if ?

Thereby, I turned my life around in the pursuit of the dream I had, with the same passion that grew in the beginning.
