    "Hi everyone! I am Shana and I’ve been skating for eleven years. Five years ago I discovered synchronized skating and I’ve always wondered why that didn’t happen sooner. Right now I’m a member of Team Crystallice, a mixed age team from Ghent, Belgium. Besides skating I’m keeping myself busy with creative projects, baking, and ordering way too many clothes online. I’m very excited to be a member of the Jura Synchro family and I can’t wait to share my love for synchro with the whole synchro community."
