Leslie Mak

Gymnast

                      

   

What is your career highlight so far?

PAC 10's 2011! It was the first time Oregon State has won PAC 10's since 1996 and I was honored with the Pac 10 Gymnast of the Year Award.
 

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

My sister has always been my role model and best friend. However, my parents are also my heroes for guiding me and encouraging me to chase my dreams no matter where they take me.
 

 

What is your favorite gymnastics event?

Balance beam is my favorite event because it's when I'm most calm and relaxed. But there's nothing like competing floor and entertaining the crowd with fun, high energy dancing.

 

What was your favorite subject in school? And why?

Marketing. That is actually what I'm majoring in at Oregon State.  I'm drawn to marketing because I enjoy the idea of bringing value to customers and I've always enjoyed socializing and networking. Finally, I think marketing is an excellent way for me to combine my love of sports with my love for marketing, and it is my dream to work in the sports marketing field in the future.

 

What do you like to do in your free time?

Spend time with my family, friends, and teammates, and skype with my family and friends from home.

 

What advice do you have for an aspiring gymnast?

Everything happens for a reason. If you ever have doubts about anything, or question yourself, just trust that it will all work out. My career in gymnastics has not been the exact way I planned it, what with injuries and other setbacks, but looking back, I wouldn't have it any other way.
