“I started snowboarding when I was 5 years old and have been with the First Nations Snowboarding Team now for four years and in those four years I have learned how to get my confidence up by the coaches giving me support. I am becoming a better snowboarder because the coaches continue to encourage me on. In the future I want to get better at going down the mountain really fast on my snowboard. My favourite part of being on the FNST is making me do something outside instead of playing video games all day long. Thank you FNST.”
