Why this sport?
She became interested in Para snowboarding after watching the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang on TV. "The Paralympic Winter Games were broadcast on TV and I saw snowboarding. My parents said we could go to Epleny to try the sport. My first experience wasn't quite positive, I didn't understand what people enjoyed in snowboarding. But now I do, the speed gives me a sense of freedom."
