Who is the person you most admire/greatest influence in your life and why: My grandparents, Frank and Muriel Messina. They have always supported me throughout my skating career and have been my cheering squad since the beginning.
They've taught me how to take life by the horns, and to finish everything I have started no matter what. Without them I probably would not be where I am today.
List your hobbies: I love to read, dance, and do my Insanity work out!!
What music do you listen to during training or competition? I love pretty much everything, during training I tend to listen more to songs that are about inspiration and motivation. I also listen to hard rock during work outs.
