    Who is your hero in real life? Why? *
    My hero in real life is my mother, as she is very knowledgeable in core studies and is able to help me, whenever I have trouble in homework or in life in general. She always is able to answer my questions, and is able to help me reason out situations. She is always supportive of me and it helps me boost my confidence. Before every national tournament which I compete in, my mother would call me and wish me luck. It really helped me feel good about myself no matter the results, and helped me with my doubts about myself.
    Karate, Drawing, Piano, Watching Anime

    Biggest Win. Why? *
    My biggest win was the 2016 USA NKF National Championships because I was able to qualify for the Junior PKF Team, along with being live streamed on the internet for the first time, and being able to understand myself more with each fight I had. When I was in the finals, I was definitely nervous after getting scored on with a head kick. But it was also helping me build up my mental strength and it helped me to not stress out and I was able to control myself calmly. When I won the gold, I was very happy, but I knew that there is more out there, and I can't be satisfied yet.
    What do you love about competition? *
    I love the adrenaline rush that comes with every match, I love being able to meet new people and reunite with my friends from around the world, and to work with my teammates to get each other to be stronger, together. I also love being able to travel, and have new experiences from around the world, in places I have never been before.
    Favorite way to relax? *
    My favorite way to relax is to lay down in bed, eat some snacks, watch some YouTube or draw, and enjoy it until the next practice. Otherwise, i like to hang with my friends, maybe play some video games or outdoor games, to have some fun.
    Where do you get your inspiration from? *
    I get my inspiration from my brothers, as they have both made the team before while having different experiences. When they tell me the stories of it, it made me want to make the team even more with every story. I would train with them sometimes, and they would give me pointers every practice, with things I need to work on, which really helps me a lot.
