Kaitlyn: Since I was a little girl, my mom always told me to do my best, hold fast to what I believe in, and not worry what people think, because in the end it will all pay off. She was right!

Q. What’s your favourite social media account to follow?
Kaitlyn: My favourite social media account to follow is @elephantjournal. I love art, writing, and inspiration, and this account is very bountiful 🙂 .

Q. Who or what is your biggest motivation?
Kaitlyn: My past and my future are my biggest motivations. My past, because I can look back and always know what I can do better should I get another opportunity. I always want to be better than the day/event before. My future, because I have a vision for where I want to go (in skating, and in life) and I am inspired to make it happen!
