Estelle Camilleri

When did you start Judo?

I started judo around six years ago.

Why did you start Judo?

When I first watched judo I was amazed with how much talent and strength judokas have. At that time, I was applying for the national school of sports and thought that this will be a good opportunity to start judo.

What do you value the most?

The value which I value the most is the one of respect. It is important to respect your coach and other judokas on the tatami and also outside the dojo where you respect your family and friends.

Are you a glass half empty or glass half full kind of person?

In general I try to be a positive person so I can cope better during rough times. And if there is someone who is passing through a hard time I try to cheer him up.

If you could do anything in the world what would it be?

If I could do anything I would spend my time with the ones who I love because life is short maybe even shorter than you might think.

Where do you want to be in 5-10 years from now?

In 10 years from now I hope that I would have graduated and I hope that I will have a good employment maybe as a vet or biophysics.
