Short Answers
Q: What are your skating goals, both short-term and long-term?
Short term goals:
- find a serious partner that is willing to go all in and train hard with me
- compete on the JGP circuit and at Junior Worlds representing Taiwan.

Long term goals:
- compete at Youth Olympics, Four Continents, Senior Worlds, and Olympics, all likely representing Taiwan.
Q: What qualities do you possess that would make you a good partner?
- trained in ice dance from the start with a young male coach (Todd Gilles) so very comfortable in lifts, partnering and fundamental spins.

- passed 9 (partnered) dance tests in 2 months (3 + 6)all on first try. Also passed Pre-Silvers within 5 days of learning them.

- passed up to Junior MIF and Intermediate FS under Darlene Cain (former Canadian Junior ice dance champion) and Pierre Panayi (12 tests total) in 3 months, all on the first try.

-transitioned over from freestyle where I was noted for my speed across the ice and high jumps,so I have a strong core from jumping, which is beneficial in complicated lifts.

- very mobile in terms of training location; my family does not own any property in the US so moving is just a matter of checking out of a hotel and moving to wherever I need to be. Since I am completely home-schooled, my training schedule is very flexible.

- speak, read and write fluently in English, Chinese and Japanese

-willing to house and board as well as provide financial suppprt for a suitable partner, either from the US or from outside the country
Extra comments:
- I’m not here to be average – I’m here to find someone who will recognize this unique opportunity I provide to compete for Taiwan and win with me.

- I have dual citizenship because my mother is Taiwanese and my father is from Texas. As of now, there are no formed ice dance pairs in Taiwan and all the JGP/SGPs as well as JW/SW spots are wide open for us to take.

- I am quite mobile. My family and I have lived in many countries, so moving (and doing so on days notice) is not an issue for us.

-willing to house and board as well as provide financial suppprt for a suitable partner, either from the US or from outside the country

- For further information or setting up a tryout, please contact my coaches and myself.
