How do you offset has become a teen and a far-famed contestant?
I try to live a ordinary teenage life as much as possible. I go to institution when I can and I hang out with myfriends. Its just hard to get that kind of free time in the winter, because I have to do a bunch ofhomework when I can, so that I dont have to worry about it when competing.
Snapchat or Instagram? Which one is your favourite and why?

Do you feel pressure, “goin ” as the favourite, to act and acquire again at the X Recreation?
I dont feel pressing to acquire, but I definitely do feel the pressure to go out there and do the best I can. But Ilove the X Recreation, everyones exactly always so stoked happening there and trip and it truly places a good vibe.

It will definitely mean a lot, especially to my parents. I think that going to the Olympics would be a hugehonor and a fantasy is true. Certainly looking for 2018 and I think that its going to be a greatyear.
What manufactured “youve been” adore snowboarding after being not so sure about the boast in the beginning?
I was not so sure about the boast when I first started, but as I led snowboarding more and startedprogressing, I started to fall in love with it. I just think I had more enjoyable snowboarding when I was able to gointo the breath and do rotates and flip-flops. When I started to ride Mammoth, I had my first ever powder lead andthats too when I wanted to ride more gunpowder and hose, and thats why we bought a region in Mammothlast year.
Bonus: Where will you be in 2030, when you’re 30?
Wow, I never even thought of that up to now! Thats insane, but I think if my person lets me then Illdefinitely go for it. I dont imagine I can shape that decision right now, but hopefully!
