A little bit about me
I was born in Ukraine, moved to New Zealand when I was 10 for 6 years and now call Australia home. I fell in love with Rhythmic Gymnastics at the age of 8 and immediately transitioned from ballroom dancing. In my experience I have competed at 7 New Zealand National Championships and represented New Zealand once, 6 Australian National Championships and represented Australia once also. My most successful competition was the 2010 NZ Championships during which I was representing Australia - I won 5 (out of 5 possible) gold medals! I started coaching when I was 14 and never looked back. As a 14-year-old I came home after my first coaching session and I said "coaching is amazing and one day, I'll have my own club!"... 9 years later my dream has come true! I have coached in both New Zealand and Australia, and in various recreational and competition oriented clubs.
