PERSONAL

Family: Mother Maria Christina Montanaro… Younger brother Alessandro Mario Gianni Hoppe… Moved to Canada as a kid because of her father’s work; was supposed to be a five year stay but it ended up permanent… Getting into the Sport: Started fencing at age 11… Had to pick a sport when she moved to Canada and her mother suggested fencing because she had wanted to try it when she was younger but never had the chance… Outside Interests: Studying languages/translation at Concordia University… Works at a café twice a week… Enjoys reading French literature, running, yoga, playing with her dog Cesar… Odds and Ends: Favourite motto: “Think gold, never settle for silver”… Biggest role model has always been Serena Williams because of her mental strength… Has a good luck charm on a bracelet that she always wears with holes in the shape of stars… Nicknames: Mali, Linky, Malinky… Would get annoyed if she forgot to pack her Beats headphones and the charger…
