My goals for the 2007 Canada Winter Games
I'll do my very best to get some personal best times, especially in the 500m and 1000m, and try to make at least one A final. Skating against such a varied field is a great opportunity to improve on strategy as well. I also hope to meet some interesting people from around the country and found new friendships. Finally, the ultimate goal is to grow as a person with this once in a lifetime experience.
My personal role model
There are many models who incarn values which I try to follow myself. Such as Lance Armstrong who overcame adversity, assumed his underdog status and came out on top on many occasions, Stephane Dion who stayed true to his values and beliefs and won the liberal leadership and Perdita Felician and Jeremy Wotherspoon who had unfortunate Olympic accidents, yet picked themselves up and kept striving for excellence.
Other information that could be of interest to the media
This summer, a couple of friends and I started a band and we hope to release our first CD by mid-May.

I am captain of the Improvisation team at my high school.
