    Athlete Bio


    Colony, Texas, TX

    This is my third time making the Junior US Team! All three times have been for Kumite....My parents. They are always by my side and supporting me endlessly in anything I am interested. They are extremely hard working and have set an example that by working hard, you can achieve anything you set your mind to....I love the feeling of adrenaline before stepping into the ring. It's really exciting to feel my heart beating fast and sweaty palms, because I believe the if I'm nervous, I am ready. No matter the size of the competition, I always feel this way.
