My name is Nastya Kovalenko and I'm a level 9 rhythmic gymnast. I was born in 2004, and I've been doing rhythmic gymnastics for almost 12 years already. I started gymnastics very early, when I was just under 3 years old. One of my biggest achievements in this sport was in Level 5, when I won first place all-around at the Open Championships in Chicago. I was state champion for multiple years as well, in levels 3 and 5. Outside of rhythmic gymnastics, I also do well in school and receive straight A's, and enjoy traveling with my family.

Hi my name is Alyssa and I am 11 years old. I started Gymnastics at age 8 after years in dance where I found I was too energetic and could not channel my energy just in dance anymore. When I started, I was put in an advanced class and was able to do a lot of the other girls could do. The coach saw my talent and I was put in the Beginner Group. When my coach started her own gym, I followed without hesitation. When I started level 4, I was told that I had everything that a gymnast requires. I have been to Open Camp every year since I started gymnastics. I also play the piano and have the best marks of the grade
