How were you introduced to table tennis: 
When I was 7, I played a variety of different sports for fun. One of our family friends suggested trying out table tennis, so I started taking lessons once a week. When I was 9, I decided to drop the other sports and focus on table tennis.

Personal Info:
I have 2 dogs and 1 cat. When I grow up, I want to be a veterinarian. My favorite subject in school is science. I'm obsessed with Harry Potter and the Hunger Games.

I'm a good skier.
