How long have you been into climbing and fitness/Where did you learn?
Early on, I was engaged in different activities, from dancing ballroom dances to playing on a soccer team.
The first time I tried climbing was in 2013. I attended a summer camp at my local indoor climbing gym, Atlanta Rocks! and eventually became a part of the staff.
What is your favorite book right now?
At this particular moment, I am enjoying Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love & Wisdom
If you could go back in time to any concert what would it be and why?
My absolute favorite band in this universe is “Prāta Vētra”. It is one of the most well-known and respected bands in Latvia, amongst all generations. It has a special place in the hearts of Latvian people.
