I am currently 17 years old. At home I primarily speak Russian. I have competed since I was 6 and right now I train 20–25 hours per week and I have been level 10 since 2013-2014 season. I tore my ACL in December of 2013 and was out of Gymnastics until August of 2014. I began competing level 10 again in January of 2015. Besides gymnastics I enjoy drawing, painting, theater, and reading. I also intern in computational biology at the Mirny Lab in MIT through the PRIMES program. In college I plan to major in physics and probably minor in history.
