In an interview with the “Blossom on Ice”, Starr commented on her performance in Tallinn and told why she wants to be different than everyone else, who brought her to the ice rink when she was a kid and how the video on YouTube that she posted for relatives has gotten 55 million views.

How do you feel about your performance at Junior Worlds in Tallinn?

I feel really good. I definitely tried to put all my energy out in both of my programs, and I’m really proud of myself.

My long program is Salome, “Dance of the Seven Veils”. It’s definitely different from any programs I’ve done before, and I really like it, too. I’ve been working really hard on it, and I was excited to show it in Tallinn.
