A: My little sister loves it though. She really has heart for it. She's like the hardest worker ever. She's really stubborn with coaches and stuff, but she's a really hard worker. She's 7 right now and she's doing better than what I did at 10. I'm really proud of her. I hope if she loves it, I hope she does it. But if she doesn't then I hope she makes a decision about it before it's too late.
Q: Do you feel like a rebel in your family now that you're not skating?
A: No. I feel typical. Everyone in my house is like super extraordinary. I'm like, "I go to high school. I do my homework. I don't figure skate anymore." I feel normal, I guess, which is nice.
Q: Do you have any memories of your father?
A: I do. Photographs. I have those. And what everyone tells me. They tell me that I'm identical to him and I do everything that he did and talk like he did and smile like him and just look like him. Photographs of him make me remember.
