Suzanna Alsayed Her Childhood
Suzanna was born in Moscow, Russia. She was two years old when her parents relocated with her to Montreal, Canada. From the very early age of five, Suzanna began training as a Rhythmic Gymnast in Quebec City. Her talents for the rare sport were evident immediately, and over the next few years she quickly excelled.
Back to Her Roots
At the age of eight, Suzanna’s parents made a very difficult yet wise decision her behalf. They wanted her to learn the discipline she needed to be a true star in all aspects of her life and they knew deep down that the only effective way to accomplish this was to temporarily displace her from her comfortable surroundings. And so, she moved to Orsk, Russia to live with her grandmother for two full years.
There, Suzanna trained hard in a country highly acclaimed for its leadership in the sport of Rhythmic Gymnastics. She was given the opportunity to learn from some of the world’s best coaches, alongside some of the best athletes the sport has ever seen. Over these two critical years, Suzanna mastered the Russian language, grew strong and independent, and acquired the base skill set in Rhythmic Gymnastics that she would need to make her competitive dreams a reality.
Awards, Accreditations and Her Many Talents
Upon Suzanna’s return to Canada, she was a changed girl. She now had the discipline, the drive and the determination she needed to not only succeed in Rhythmic Gymnastics, but in every facet of life.
Throughout her years in competition, Suzanna won over 45 medals and ribbons on a provincial, national and international scale. Her trophies and certificates are numerous, receiving 1st place overall on many occasions at regional and Canada-wide events. At the age of 15, Kats Design (a custom-designer of gorgeous gymnastics costumes) sponsored the Suzanna, providing her with free custom outfits that she wore at competitions and performances around the world.
Suzanna is not only an athlete, but a recognized teen model, actor and stage performer, winning Miss Teen Talent Canada titles and local talent shows. She also excels in mathematics and the game of chess, winning two gold and one bronze medal in competitions. She speaks English, French and Russian and is a strong student.
Her Future Plans
2010 marked the end of an era for Suzanna as she decided to bid farewell to her beloved sport of Rhythmic Gymnastics. Even though originally her plans had included a strong attempt to compete in the Olympic Games, the demanding hours and never ending injuries took precedence. Although it was sad to leave, Suzanna enjoys her freedom and looks forward to using her talents in other ways.
As she comes a little closer to graduating high school, Suzanna has begun to draw a few roadmaps of her professional future. She intends to collaboratively use her multilingualism and dance talents to create a lifelong career that will fulfill her many passions.
