When and where did you begin this sport? She began fencing at age seven in Strasbourg, France.
Why this sport? Her mother signed her older brother up for a sports camp. She went along too, and on the last day of the camp there was an introduction to fencing. She beat all the boys during the activity and caught the eye of the fencing master, who invited her to join his club.
