Antonia Christa (USA)
I began Roller skating at 5 years old and was immediately in love. There were few things that came naturally to me like roller skating due to my disability. With roller skating, all of my other senses take over and I become totally focused and relaxed. I spent summers at the roller skating rink to overcome a lot of the places I didn’t feel welcomed at. Roller skating allows me to feel pure bliss and joy.
