Life's Moments & Inspirations

My greatest achievement has been... To win the championship (double or nothing international Chile) and compete in Tampa Am in the United States.
My biggest inspiration is... My family, my friends, and people who motivate me to skate. Also skaters like Nyjha Hoston.
My next ambition is... I would like to win Tampa Am and also go to shoot the best part video to Europe.
My people describe me as... A young dreamer who never gives up. Entrepreneur not only on the skateboard but also in what I long for and what I want for my future. Also a little funny and always humble.
How I relax is... I like to go out to eat with my mom. I also like to spend my free time learning new things like languages or phrases in other languages. I also like to travel on my bike learn to learn.
My advice to the young athletes starting out is... Do not be afraid that your friends will laugh or other skaters look ugly if you are trying a trick they believe impossible, have imagination, if you imagine doing it, it is possible, you just have to believe it and believe in you it is important to have fun.
