Athlete Bio


Honolulu, HI

I started karate when I was 6 years old....I've made the Junior US Team 3 times. The first 2 times were for both 12-13 Female Kata and this year for 14-15 Female Kumite -54kg....My hero in real life is Jesus Christ because He is a constant reminder of how we as people should live....Personally, I feel that every win for me is big because of all the hard work that I put into training prior to the competition....I love seeing all of my out of state friends and the thrill I get when I compete!...I get my inspiration from my teammates, senseis, parents, and older siblings because they keep pushing me constantly in training, and inspire me to be a better person in the dojo and out of the dojo...."Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God"
