Chantel's skating journey
I started skating when I was really young. When I was a kid my dad used to make a crappy rink in our backyard. It didn't always freeze so it was kind if dangerous. I don't really remember the learning process, but I remember feeling like a natural and I still feel that way. It's like riding a bike for me. I started skating probably when I was in kindergarten because we would go with my church. I didn't have my own pair of skates when I was that young, so I would borrow them or share skates with my cousins. Skating has made me feel more Canadian. It connected me with people from different cultural backgrounds.
