How long have you been paddling?

12 years.

What do you like best about dragon boating?

I love the team aspect, all working together for a common goal, whether it be a practice piece or a 500m race. I am pretty competitive and I love the competition! I love what a small community of paddlers there is around the country and even the world. I have met so many amazing people through my paddling that I never would have had the opportunity to meet otherwise.

What do you want to tell others about MNDBC?

Paddling for me is a passion and an addiction!! I’d encourage others to come try it out and I’m certain it will become their passion too!!
