We are a sister and brother ice dance team from New York. We compete at the Junior Level. We come from a family of 7 children, and as you can imagine, money is tight.
As the story goes, we get up at 5 am everyday. We skate from 6-9am, take a break for schoolwork and lunch, and then skate again from 1-3pm. After we skate, we do an hour of off-ice and then go for a long run.
Two years ago, we earned a spot on Team USA. We have proudly represented the USA in competitions in Lithuania, Armenia, Russia, and Italy . We ended our first year in Junior with the pewter medal that we earned at the US Figure Skating Championships in Detroit, Michigan. This year, in January,we are headed to Greensboro, North Carolina to compete again at the US Figure Skating Championships.
We are super-excited for the year ahead!!!!! Go USA!!!!
