What sparked your interest in climbing and how long have you been climbing?

I started climbing 5years ago when i was 9 years old, abseiling outdoors at my local cliff and then went to Berowra,NSW, with my farther. We then started climbing indoors at The Edge in Castle Hill. I did my first competition in Australia, The Big Boulder Bash at Climb Oz in Sydney and came first with a massive Madrock beanbag as a prize that i still have!
Then there was a change of plan and we decided to move to France at the age of 10 for family and educational reasons but also to have the opportunity to train harder because the infrastructures and competition rules in Australia did not match the best international standard
I did my first competition there and came 3rd. From that point on I really started training very hard for competitions.

What is your home gym?

The world is my fun climbing gym

What are you proud of achieving so far and what are your goals?

I'm very proud to have finished 5th at the French Bouldering Championship being the only person being born in 2004 making it to finals and also for the French Speed Championship where i finished 4th with my own record of 9''58 sec. And indeed very happy to finish 1st in boulder at the Australian ClifBar Youth Championship.  

Do you have any idols?

T. Narasaki, A. Puccio, G.Supper

Do you have any sponsors?

I wish I had

Do you have a fun fact about, a food you can’t go without, pre competition superstitions or routines?

I have been regularly playing violin for 7 year and train every day along my climbing
