What are you motivated by?
Trying new tricks and overcoming the initial fear motivates me. It makes me want to try even harder. And learn even harder tricks.

My fear is my biggest challenger. Thinking about doing a new trick and then knowing what could happen if it goes wrong is definitely not easy.

Let's talk music:
Favorite song right now: Tai Verdes - A.O.K
Favorite song of all time: Fat Joe - all the way up
What is unique about your music taste?
My music taste is very diverse. Most of the time I listen to music that makes me happy, like songs from the ‘80s. Also because I feel like many people know songs from the ‘80s. Sometimes I love to listen to songs that get me hyped for a BMX Session so I play some rap.
