My siblings and I had a bit of a tough childhood, as we lost our father when I was just eight years old.
My mom, who was a housewife at the time, had to step into the provider role and she made a lot of sacrifices in order to send us to a good school as well as give us a university education. When you’re young, you don’t really understand the situation, so you don’t appreciate those sacrifices until you’re older. From the example my mom set, I truly believe that you can’t let the past impact your future in a negative way. Everything that happened in my childhood has made me who I am today and I am proud of that.
I’ve always been an active person and when I was growing up, I was naturally drawn to dancing and other sports.
I started taking ballet lessons when I was about three and regularly participated in sports at school – I loved the physicality of it as well as the social side. Eve
