Professional Snowboarder, Jenise Spiteri joins the WSA as an official Representative.
Jenise Spiteri, WSA Representitive and Professional Snowboarder talks to us about her sporting career, so far.
Most competitive snowboarders are approaching the heights of their careers at age 18, but for me, that’s when I began. Instead of seeing my late start as a disadvantage, I used it as motivation to work even harder to achieve my goals. By the end of my first year I podiumed every event for my age division at US Nationals, by my second year I podiumed every event at College Nationals (competing for Sierra Nevada University where I was receiving a snowboarding scholarship), and by my fourth year I was invited to my first pro level competition, the US Grand Prix. I’m now in my 6th year of competing internationally in the professional circuit and have my sights set on making it to the 2022 Winter Olympics.
Through my own athletic journey, I hope to inspire others to push towards their goals and see that with hard work and fierce determination, no dream is too big to achieve. I’m excited to be a part of the Women’s Sports Alliance because it will allow me to share my knowledge and experiences with the next generation of female athletes, and help foster a network of women who support and encourage each other beyond their own sports. I’m also looking forward to helping female athletes learn how they can use social media to take ownership over their athletic careers and use it to increase their career’s longevity and financial stability.
