When and where did you begin this sport?
She first tried snowboarding in 2019.
Why this sport?
"It was great. I was a bit scared. I feel free, and feel like I can do what I want and be relaxed. At first when I didn't do sports I would feel insecure about my disability because I thought I was different from the other kids. After that I realised I can do more. Sport can help me so much."
