This eight year old gymnast is constantly in motion. At home, on the school playground, in the backyard, and of course, at gymnastics practice, Deeya is a whirling ball of energy. With ease and grace she'll flip head over heels and be back up again before you can finish your sentence. Just discussing gymnastics makes her eyes light up as she describes the moves she's mastered and those she's currently working on. Deeya is also an reader, plays the piano, dances, and earns top marks in school. With an extremely kind heart, she's friend to all, and the first to reach out and offer help to those in need.
We asked Deeya to tell us a little bit more about herself and this is what she had to say:
What I like about myself… I help people and I like trying new things.
Something that I think makes me unique is… I can run fast and the way I smile.
Sometimes, when I’m feeling silly, I like to… jump on the bed!
The bravest thing I’ve ever done is… fly on an airplane by myself from New York to Vancouver.
What I’m scared of is… the three headed dog in one of the Harry Potter books.
My favorite things to do are… run, do gymnastics, and play tag.
What I’d like to try someday… I'd like to see Florida and do a whipback in gymnastics.
Things I can do that make me feel proud are… a roundoff back handspring and dancing.
Huge thanks to Deeya for sharing a little bit about herself with us! See Deeya's Gymnastics shirt.
