Juliet James is one of those girls you just want to hang out and skate with. She's super nice, positive, and fun. At just 15 years old and with only 2 years of skating under her feet she is pushing ahead and skating different parks up and down the coast of California with a group of skater friends to learn to skate new terrain, try new tricks and now, she's entering her very first contest. Read on to see what this rad skater girl is up to!

Three things you don't know about me:
1. I’m a vegetarian
2. I lived in Wales from when I was seven to when I was fourteen but I don’t have an accent.
3. I have this weird superstition that if you say what you hope the weather will be, it will be the opposite.
I’m going to be skating in Amateur Bowl at Exposure on November 8th. This will be my first time competing so I am really nervous, but I know that I’m going to have tons of fun and that it will be a great experience. I just need to keep reminding myself that everyone is super supportive so I should just focus on skating and having fun, and not worry about all the people watching me.
