Thank you for coming and sharing your aerials journey with us, I found extremely valuable and inspiring. Since starting aerials in 2012 I have looked up to you and your training ethic, and I envisioned myself standing on the Olympic Podium with a gold medal just like you! From talking to you I learnt many ways on how to improve and develop my aerials career. You are my inspiration and thanks to you I now have a raging fire in my belly to go out there, work hard and achieve my dreams!
