5 QUESTIONS WITH OLYMPIC HOPEFUL KENZIE PRIDDELL

November 14, 2020

Before training was shut down, you had moved to Montreal to train with the national synchronized swimming team, how did that go?

Montreal was great! It’s so motivating to be surrounded by a group of strong and talented girls all working toward the same dream. I love being a member of Team Canada and all the opportunities and experiences that come with that! My favourite part is proudly wearing the maple leaf and traveling the world with my teammates (pre-Covid).

You’re enrolled in the pre-physical therapy program at the University of Regina. Is there a specific area you’d like to work in with that education?

To be honest, I’m still figuring out exactly what my path is after sport. I am definitely considering physical therapy because I am interested in working in health care and I want to help inspire others.

You’re taking classes online this year, which is a new way of learning for most people. how have you adapted to learning this way and do you have any tips for this style of learning?

Online classes can definitely be more difficult to manage because we are missing that in-person connection and understanding. Right now with my training schedule, online classes are the only way I can be in school so I am very thankful for them! My advice would be to try and stay organized, but most of all to live in the moment and take each class one assignment/test at a time.

You’ve participated in some public speaking engagements with younger athletes, what motivates you to do that?

One of the things I really enjoy about representing Team Canada is being a role model to young athletes. I love sharing my journey and helping others to go for their dreams and reach their goals in any way I can. I think it is important to know that each athlete has a different path. We all encounter challenges and setbacks, but with hard work, determination and belief in yourself, you can get to where you want to be.
