The student pilot indicated that she had landed midfield, with 20 degrees of flaps and an airspeed 10 knots too fast. She also mentioned that after touchdown, the wind lifted the plane and she hit the brakes. After realizing that there was not enough room to stop, she attempted a go-around. The airplane exited the asphalt runway and hit soft soil, causing the nose gear to collapse. The airplane nosed over and came to rest on its back. The student pilot reported no mechanical failures or malfunctions with the airplane.
