Youngest To Compete In The Asian Games 2018
Aliqqa started skating when she was around 7-years-old in Jakarta. Her grandparents gifted her a skateboard on her seventh birthday. After that, her father took her to a skate park and was amazed to see Aliqqa’s skating skills. He suggested that Aliqqa should join a skating school. She joined the skate school and worked so hard to achieve great things. Her father and family play a massive role in her success. The skating prodigy says that she could not reach here without her parents’ support.
Once a friend of Aliqqa told her mother that the selection process would be held for the Asian games. Initially, her mom didn’t give much attention to it, but she said Aliqqa about it one day. The little girl really wanted to compete in it. At the time of selection, she was the youngest there to participate. Aliqqa says that she participated because she just wanted to show everyone that she is strong enough. She usually went forward and competed. She was very anxious while waiting for the result and was shocked to know that she got selected. It was one of the most significant achievement for the young girl to participate in Asian Games 2018 at such a young age.
An Upcoming Skating Star
Aliqqa’s love & passion for the skateboard is only growing day by day. She hopes to be a skater as amazing as her role model, Sky Brown. She is all about speed because she does tricks that are very challenging & require breakneck speed. The young girl is an inspiration for the youngsters who want to make a skating career.
