Note to fellow skaters:

“Savor every great moment on and off the ice. Skate with passion, resilience, love and never be afraid to grow a little…or a lot. At the end of the day, it’s just figure skating, and it’s a lot more fun to be proud of the challenges you have and have yet to overcome.” - Bella
