“I’ve continued to do what I can within the limitations of my life demands. Everyone in the league has been so encouraging. Even when I’m hard on myself for not being able to put more time or effort into it, my coaches have been nothing but supportive. You do what you can when you can do it. They push me – for sure! They try to get me out of my comfort zone – heck, yes! That’s what they’re supposed to do!…” – Fiera Reaper. Read Fiera’s entire blog post, here.
