I´m from the Canary Islands. It´s a really good place for surfing but there are many fanatics climbers too. I started to climb when I saw a bouldering competition in my hometown, it was psyched for me!
How old were you when you started?
I was 18 years old when I started.. Before I did body board (surf)..

My friends from the island… it was very motivating to see strong girls climbing... that really inspired me... I wanted to do that!! :-)
Who served as your inspiration in life?
My parents, my friends, my boyfriend... I feel lucky having many good people close of me :-)

My first climbing outdoor was in a little but beautiful volcanic area in Gran Canaria called Santa
Lucia... I felt fear... I didn´t enjoy too much hahaha but the experience teach me a lot... and after that I learned to enjoy climbing.
