What does SheShredsCo mean to you?
For me being a SheShreds.co ambassador is mainly about community. It’s about being a part of a huge family of girls who shred hard and experiencing similar ups and downs as I am while doing a men dominated sport. Those girls are also a huge inspiration form me and I now they are there for me whatever is happening.
What challenges do you face being a female in the sport?
I think that girls are often not taken seriously, they are not considered a hard-core shredders just because they are girls. Sometimes it makes thinks really hard when you are learning something new and you are laughed at before you even step on your board just because you are a girl, which not makes thinks easier. But luckily there are organizations like Shreshreds.co who brings those hard-core girl shredders together so everyone can see that being a girl is nothing bad or limiting.
Where is the most unusual place you have done your sport?
I had a chance to skate a hill once in Iceland.
What has been your most memorable moment so far?
Every time I land a new trick which I was practicing for a while, falling every time. And Also when I slided for a first time after a had injury.
Who/what are your inspirations
All the girls in the She-shreds community.
Favorite thing about SheShreds products?
That they are made for girls who shred, by girls who shred. They are nice and functional at the same time, and you support girl shredders all over the world by buying the products.
