Ellen C Kim is a young girl from California who started figure skating at the age of 4. She originally wanted to become a singer, but after realizing that she had talent, her parents decided they would push her into the sport of figure skating. Ellen as a girl struggled with a foot condition – the same that Olympic Gold Medalist Kristi Yamaguchi has. The condition is actually club feet and doctors recommended her to do figure skating for therapy. Initially, her parents weren't very keen on figure skating, but they were happy to know that figure skating would help with her feet. They knew she was good, so they just let her continue.

She improved in the sport and slowly got better with time. She remembers encountering times when she would fall because of her feet's condition, but she remembers just getting back up and practicing the moves all over again. While she was 8, she remembers her Mom telling her about Kristi Yamaguchi and how she also had the same condition. It was right then she knew that she would try competing in the sport, and someday try to become like Kristi. Ellens coach is Tara Tabie Kim (or Tabie Kim), and she says that Ellen has got a few years before she hits the Olympic level.

Ellen, who is now 13, has seen quite a lot of success in her skating. In fact, she's competing in the intermediate level as singles skater, and when doctors took a quick look at her feet when she was 11, they noticed that her feet was cured of the condition. She hopes that one day she will become an Olympic Gold Medalist like Kristi Yamaguchi. Ellen's story is truly inspiring to those with the same physical condition and more so to those without it.
