My name is CeCé Telfer and I am a sprinter. My favorite event is the 400m hurdles. I was born in Jamaica but I was raised in Canada. Growing up with Jamaican parents and family, there are a lot of expectations to live up to. I started running track at a really young age, it was cultural and all Jamaicans have to do it. It’s in my blood. Track has always been apart of my life. I consider myself a well rounded athlete. I cross train with other sports, like volleyball, cheerleading, gymnastics, and tennis, to keep my head in the game.
When I’m not on the track, I try to contribute my time to my community in any way I can; from singing the national anthem at events, to doing digital panels and speaking engagements to help educate and spread awareness. Most of us have a dark past, that has shaped into who we are today. I am a person of faith and I believe that the goals I want to achieve with track, are beyond me. I strive to be the change I want to see in the world.
