My Story

Andrew Torgashev was born to former competitive skaters and current coaches Ilona Melnichenko and Artem Torgashev on May 29, 2001 in Coral Springs, Florida. Andrews’ skating career began at the young age of 4. He expressed his desire to begin skating to his parents after taking a family Christmas picture in ice skates.


Andrew is an aspiring Olympic figure skater who looks up to figure skating greats such as Evgeni Plushenko, Patrick Chen and Evan Lysachek. He spends over 25 hours weekly both on and off ice perfecting his moves and techniques so that one day he can fulfill his dream. Andrew loves doing jumps and spins. His favorite parts of being a competitive figure skater are traveling, meeting new friends and the challenge of doing better than his expectations. His dedication and passion for figure skating drive him to work hard and exceed at all the goals he sets for himself.


Andrew is an A & B student in 9th grade and attends North Broward Prep School. His favorite subject is History. His younger sister named Deana, is hoping to follow in her brothers footsteps. She is currently on a dance team, plays the violin and she also loves to skate competitively. Andrew is fluent in both English and Russian and he is also learning Chinese and Spanish at school.When he is not figure skating he enjoys doing regular kid activities like reading, playing basketball, ping pong, video games and watching TV.
