I'm Maise (age 9) and I've been skating for 5 years. I have a best friend called Anneliese. Me and Anneliese were very sad when we heard the rink had closed for the first time, then my stepdad died and he was very close with the ice rink and friends. I've been in 3 Christmas shows but the 3rd one was cancelled because the rink closed for the 2nd time and we had to do something so we started going to other rinks or off-ice. I had a comp coming up at Lee Valley and I came 8th out of 24.
