Why do you love to skate? Skating for me is liberating, it evades me from the rest of the world

What keeps you pushing forward in skating? I know I have a long way to go, I know I can improve and I know I can be with the best people in the world, so why not go ahead and enjoy it

What was your greatest success? It was definitely when I got the gold medal in my modality, jump.

What is your favorite place to skate? I like all the places to skate, especially going through cities like Paris, Milan ... But if I have to choose a place it would be my hometown, I feel very calm when I skate there and I never get tired, even if I have seen the views a million times.

What is your favorite trick? I don't usually do tricks but when I did slalom I really liked the chicken and seven.

What advice would you like to give? If you like to skate, skate, do not be afraid of what others say, and enjoy what you do because you want to or not one day it will end and you will only have the memories, so you have to make the best memories possible.

Any hobbies outside of skating? I really like photography, I enjoy taking pictures of people or views or scenery.

What is your favorite moment in skating? All the skating moments are my favorites, but one of the ones I liked the most was touring Paris with my friends

Tell us about your personal philosophy, phrase, ethic, and/or value as a skater! Well, my philosophy is to enjoy every moment as if it were the last.

A phrase that I have recently heard and adopted is that it is better to ask for forgiveness than permission, if you want to do something, do not regret not having done it

As a skater, I always think that you have to keep going, even if the road is hard, narrow, or with a lot of curves, that is what makes you grow as a person and an athlete, and if you can reach the goal with your best results you have to be satisfied.
