Q: What is your best memory from the last orienteering season?
A: My best memory from the last orienteering season is the first trip outside the city for orienteering. It was a training camp in Cranbrook. I met many nice people and had very useful and interesting orienteering trainings.

Q: If you had one tip for young orienteers what would it be?
A: In forest races, always double-check the direction in which you should run using the compass. Spending 5 seconds on it is better than making a 5-minute mistake.

Q: How do you normally prepare for an important race?
A: Before the event, I try to find all the information about the race and use it for preparation. On race day, I prepare mentally, do a good warm-up, and spend time alone to adjust myself for the course.

Q: Which event are you most excited for this season and why?
A: I'm most excited for COC and NAOC 2024, as I believe it will be a great chance to showcase my orienteering skills and enjoy international competition as a part of Team Canada.
