Snowboarding

A risky decision to take a semester off of college, live out of my car, & attempt to compete at the Winter X-Games started because I saw them on TV and thought why not me.
I went from Ski Brule in Iron River, MI to World Championships, to X-Games Gold & Silver medals, to 3 Olympic appearances, & I’m still at it. All becuase I Dreamt Big, believed I could do it, & I took the chance to go after it.
It opened doors to things that I never could have imagined I would get to experience. When you Dream Big the decision to follow your dreams isn’t always easy. Medals aren’t the reward, I lose most of the ones I win. The reward isn’t money, I have little. The rewards are the experiences you have, relationships you build, & the good you get to do along the way.
