She has also competed in figure skating and roller skating, and enjoys skiing and snowboarding. She usually does all of these activities with either her friends or her family - and has even done fun runs for charity. She makes excellent grades in school, and thinks she wants to study medicine or science. Oh, and she has a pet bunny rabbit that she cares for.
