Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Started surfing when she was four years old; says because she grew up with her dad and her brother, she was very strong-willed.
Originally wanted to be a stockbroker; did her work experience in school on the trading floors in Australia and realized it wasn't for her.
Knew she wanted to be the best in the world at something, so she took up every sport she could.
After she won her first regional surfing championship, she decided to drop all the other sports and focus on surfing.
Says you find your true passions when you push yourself to extremes.
Once she won her first world championship, she locked in and won five more in succession.
Says that there was stress and adversities she had to overcome to set that record, but achieving her goals made up for everything.
Doesn't believe in "mistakes," says they're only learning experiences; the only "real mistake" is failing to learn from your setbacks.
