Desire to succeed
15 INDIA Biesse-Fitton has been on skis since she could stand, which means she has been skiing for 14 years.
India comes across as your average, quiet, shyish teenager, but her determination to succeed is ferocious.
Representing Ashwood School in the 2014 Interschools, India won the Division 2 Female Multiclass Alpine race.
She is also a champion swimmer and has just been selected into the Australian Swimming Paralympic Development Team.
Melbourne is home, but when she was younger, India and her family spent four winter seasons living and schooling on Mt Buller.
Shaky Knees and Wood Run
India has been lucky enough to ski in the USA, including Winter Park and Steamboat, Beaver Creek in Colorado; Park City, Utah; Silverstar, Canada and Niseko, Japan. Fun with my family and racing against my brothers, she’s still faster than Flynn but older brother Zach now beats her.
Interschools racing. Swimming and walking my dog Ruby.
Happy, family, fun.
