I picked up a bowling ball for the first time at age of 10 in Riga, Latvia, where I was born. Being born and raised in such a small country, I had no idea bowling was such a huge sport outside Europe until later, so I simultaneously played other sports – tennis, karate, skateboarding, dancing and anything that involved cool activities. But out of all of them, bowling was in heart the most. By age of 15 I had quit all the sports I was playing, except for bowling, and I decided that I wanted to become the best bowler in the world. So hard work began for me! Shortly after, I started traveling around Europe and taking part in European Bowling Tour and representing Latvia in European and World Championships in both youth and adult levels. I found success early by winning multiple medals for my country, so I became more determined and motivated to become the best version of myself. After I graduated high school in Riga, I moved to United States of America to pursue my dreams. I attended Webber International University in Babson Park, Florida. Not only did I graduate with Sports Business Management degree, but I was also part of the team who captured multiple National Championship titles! After I graduated WIU, I began to travel all over the world to compete at the highest level and spread my love of bowling with every person I crossed paths with! Fortunately, the PWBA tour came back in 2015 after a nearly two-decade break, so I joined the tour and have been part of it ever since. I have captured regular and major titles, and I have met some amazing people along the way, and I intend to continue this path for a long time!
