    Athlete Bio


    Enterprise, MS



    I started karate when I was 6 years old because my dad was taking classes and he wanted me to try it out. I ended up really liking it! Three things you may not know about me are that I like to play basketball, I have a little sister, and I can count to 10 in Japanese!...My hero in real life is my dad, he works hard for me and the whole family..."Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard"...I get my inspiration from Tim Grover
