Person you look up to & why:

Sarah Walker. Because aside from being an amazing BMX racer, she is considered the ‘Queen of BMX’ has a heart warming personality, giving riders advice in any way she can. Sarah after my crash at Columbia Worlds last year took the time to speak to me and comfort me. Even though she in a worse state than me after her crash following mine. I look up to her not only for her racing and riding but for her actions off the bike.
